Chelmsford City Council is on the hunt for an architect to redevelop its 1960s Riverside Ice and Leisure Centre
The £25 million project will create a new pool, training area, fitness suite and multi-storey car park on the prominent Victoria Road site.
The new facility will be constructed on a car park and once completed the existing leisure centre – constructed in the 1960s – will be demolished.
A nearby ice rink and sports hall – which has been home to the Chelmsford Chieftains ice hockey team since 1987 – will be retained.
Up to six teams will be shortlisted for the estimated £1.6 million design contract with bids evaluated 50 per cent on price and 50 per cent on quality.
The winning team will include a quantity surveyor, structural and civil engineer, mechanical and electrical services engineer, filtration services consultant, CDM-co-ordinator and BREEAM assessor.
Services covering transport consultancy, flood risk consultancy, landscape architecture, and building and land surveying will also be required.
The deadline for requests to participate is 4pm on 17 August.
