Trent Bridge calls for new west stand designs

A search has been launched for an architect to design a new stand and office block at the world-famous Trent Bridge cricket ground.

Nottinghamshire Cricket Club is calling for architects to submit designs for a new, 3,300-seat stand with adjacent office facilities for club staff, scorers, umpires and match referees.

The project is part of an ongoing development which has seen Trent Bridge, the world's third-oldest cricket ground, grow exponentially over recent years.

A spokesperson said: 'The scheme will develop the west side of the stadium, which will need to be demolished, and will still be named the Parr Stand.

'There are a few difficulties as we will have to fit the work around our international fixtures, as we are a test ground.'

Stadium officials are hoping to get work started by August 2007, with a likely completion date in time for the major tests the following season, in 2008.

The deadline for applications for tender is October 16.
