Architect sought to revamp Caledonian Park Clock Tower

  • Comment

Islington Council in London is seeking an architect to overhaul the Grade II*-listed Caledonian Park Clock Tower and create a new visitor centre

The project Involves the £500,000 transformation of the iconic Clock Tower which is currently on the Heritage at Risk Register and was formerly the centrepiece of a nineteenth century Metropolitan Cattle Market.

In 2012 a survey found the Victorian structure had major structural problems at roof level alongside water ingress damage and deteriorating parapet support brackets.

A new £587,000 visitor centre providing public facilities and supporting local community activities in the park is also planned.

The appointed team will spearhead the estimated £1 million from RIBA stage B to D and then beyond to completion subject to planning approval and HLF round two funding.

The architect will act as lead consultant and directly engage a structural engineer, mechanical and electrical engineers and drainage consultant to work on the project.

A ten year maintenance and management plan for the entire 7.4 hectare park will also be required as part of the £150,000 contract.

The contract will be awarded on the basis of 60 per cent quality and 40 per cent cost.

Construction is expected to start in January 2016 and complete by December.

The deadline for expressions of interest is 1 April.
