Architect sought for Milford-on-Sea beach huts

  • Comment

New Forest District Council is on the hunt for an architect to create series of new ‘aesthetically enhancing’ beach huts at Milford-on-Sea

The reinforced concrete structures will replace a number of existing cabins which were severely damaged during last winter’s storms.

The Hampshire coastal town once featured around 119 privately-owned beach huts overlooking the Solent.

More than half of the buildings were however significantly damaged when 80mph winds battered the country on 14 February and around a third of the huts have now been demolished.

The appointed team will design and deliver new cabins able to withstand similar storm events while being ‘visually attractive to the area’.

A large concrete slab supporting Milford-on-Sea’s existing promenade will also be replaced as part of a coastal protection scheme incorporating the new huts.

According to the brief: ‘This contract would suit a consultant that is familiar with designing structures suitable for a coastal environment, but also with the architectural skills to ensure a design that is aesthetically enhancing to the area.’

An options appraisal, planning application and building regulations application will also be required along with the preparation of tender documents and site supervision.

The deadline for applications is 21 January.
