Ushida Findlay on Southend Pier shortlist

Ushida Findlay, HOK and Wilkinson Eyre have been named on the five-strong shortlist to redesign Southend’s fire ravaged pier.

Southend-on-sea council have shortlisted five firms from 74 entries for the £5 million project. The competition was announced in May 2009 in association with the Landscape Institute to find a design for the pier head which has been damged by fire three times, most recently in 2005.

The winning project - expected to be announced next month - will build ‘on the town’s cultural attractions and also make the most of its important heritage.’

The shortlist

  • Wilkinson Eyre working with Schonherr Landscape and engineer Conisbee
  • Hugh Broughton Architects with Land Use Consultants, engineer SMK, and lighting designer Speirs & Major Associates
  • HOK International
  • White Arkitekter BV with engineer Price & Myers
  • Land Lab, Ushida Findlay Architects, Atkins Bennett and United Creatives
