National Trust seeks design team for £3.5m Knole House job

  • Comment

[Requests to participate to be returned by 18 December] National Trust is seeking a multidisciplinary design team for improvements to Knole House in Kent

Covering conservation repairs and the renovation of existing showrooms, the project is part of the trust’s ‘Inspired by Knole’ programme which seeks to overhaul the 17th century calendar house.

Built for Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Bourchier the palace features 365 rooms, 52 staircases, 12 entrances and 7 courtyards.

The trust is seeking a multi-disciplinary design team for the £3.5 million conservation project which focuses on 16 existing showrooms within the house but will also see five new spaces opened to the public.

The works are required from RIBA Stage C through to RIBA Stage L and completion is expected within 70 months from the design team appointment.

The appointed consortium or practice is to include structural engineers, mechanical and electrical consultants, a quantity surveyor and CDM services.

Building conservation accreditation is required with applicants also expected to have recent experience of working on Grade I-listed buildings.

In September, Rodney Melville + Partners won a competition for the £2.5 million overhaul of a medieval barn at the house.
