Architect sought for Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Hall revamp
[PQQ’s must be returned by 19 March] The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Society is seeking a design team for the £7 million refurbishment of Liverpool’s Grade II*-listed Philharmonic Performance Hall and associated spaces.
Five shortlisted teams will be invited to tender for the project which is planned to complete in 2014.
The project includes the design of a new, redesigned stage which can allow shorter change overs and more varied performances.
The hall’s lighting and cooling systems will also be improved through sustainable techniques with a view to possibly reducing current energy consumption.
Last refurbished in 1995, the art deco building was designed by architect Herbert J. Rowse and opened in 1939.
PQQ’s must be returned by 19 March
Tenders will be returned by 4 May
Successful candidates will be informed late May
