New Lanark seeks architect for £4.5m regeneration
The New Lanark Trust is on the hunt for an architect to upgrade a series of historic buildings within its UNESCO World Heritage Site
The project will restore and conserve a number of Grade A-listed properties and sites within the former cotton mills complex on the River Clyde.
The appointed multi-disciplinary design team will be responsible for developing existing plans from RIBA Stage B up to project completion.
The winning outfit will also develop and implement repair works and address conservation and restoration requirements of specific buildings.
Recognised as a historical milestone in urban planning, New Lanark was founded in 1786 as a base for cotton manufacturing and workers’ housing. The complex ceased production in 1968 and fell into decline.
It was later restored following the opening of the New Lanark Trust in 1974 and the area is now one of five UNESCO World Heritage Sites within Scotland.
The deadline for requests to participate is 5 June.
