Organisations have until 28 November to submit their applications and are able to apply for a combination of the ‘Lots’ below. The Legacy Company will shortlist organisations to go onto the next stage and intends to appoint up to six practices under each of the Lots.
Lot 1: Urban Design and Architecture
Urban design and architectural services will focus on refinement and design development of elements of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The scope of work is expected to be primarily advisory with concept designs designed to the level specified in RIBA Workstage D. There will also be the need for the review of design by others - assessing and assuring design proposals by selected developers and partners – and design monitoring.
The Legacy Company may also bring forward small-scale urban design and architectural projects, such as park pavilions, pedestrian walkways, and the fit-out of existing buildings for interim uses that may require design and implementation.
Lot 2: Landscape Design
Landscape design services will focus on design development of the full range of open spaces within the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. This may include design services for the north park, the south plaza, circulation spaces including walkways and towpaths, and neighbourhood squares and plazas. The scope of work is expected to be primarily advisory with concept design developed to the level specified in RIBA Workstage D. There is a possibility for small-scale landscape projects initiated by the Legacy Company that may require design as well as implementation.
Lot 3: Visualisation & Graphics
Graphic design services and the production of visualisations will be required in support of the Legacy Company’s marketing and communications works. Work could include layout design, preparation, and print management of documents such as design reports, brochures, project prospectus, and other print material to assist with marketing and communications, as well as the needs of design, planning, and real estate functions; preparation of material suitable for use in Legacy Company’s website and other electronic media; design and preparation of electronic and physical presentation material for use in media and stakeholder and community engagement; CGIs and renderings to illustrate the character of the Park, buildings, and events; and 3D modelling and animations.
