Architect sought for Crawley town hall regeneration

  • Comment

Crawley Borough Council is seeking an architect for a £2.5 million overhaul of its 9,600m² town hall

Planned to complete in 2017, the project will refurbish and reconfigure the 1964 structure which hosts more than 600 staff.

Expanded in 1989, the 9,600m² complex currently features large open plan offices and smaller cellular work areas spread across six floors.

The winning team will boost the building’s aesthetic appearance, physical condition, customer experience, way-finding and signage.

According to the brief: ‘The building could be reconfigured to provide more flexible and adaptable office accommodation to increase utilisation of space and free up office areas for other use.

‘However, it is not envisaged that measures such as hot desking or working from home would be introduced on a significant scale.’

The document continued: ‘It is likely that significant structural refurbishment works will be required in the main town hall building with more limited works required in the extension which is in much better condition. It is not expected that major works will be required to the building’s mechanical services but the electrical services, particularly in the main town hall will require extensive replacement.’

New serviced offices, small retail units and an enlarged ground floor ‘contact centre’ may also be included.

The winner of the £40,000 contract will develop plans up to RIBA Stage 2.

The deadline for requests to participate is 12noon on 8 June.
