Coventry City Council is on the hunt for an architect for a £26 million ‘destination water and leisure’ centre
Planned to open in 2019, the ‘iconic’ new structure will replace an existing council office block on a tightly constrained site next to the city’s Grade II*-listed Christchurch Spire.
Energy efficient, flexible designs with a ‘wow factor’ are sought for the new structure which will supersede the city’s current elephant-shaped leisure centre (pictured) - completed in 1977 - nearby.
According to the tender notice, the project will deliver ‘an exciting, iconic, high quality destination water and leisure facility that is accessible to everyone, draws people to Coventry and acts as a catalyst for the regeneration of the city centre, increases footfall and contributes to the council’s healthy living objectives.’
The appointed team will provide architectural, landscape architecture, fire engineering and acoustic engineering services.
The deadline for requests to participate 12 noon on 13 April.
