Competition: Bishopstoke Memorial Hall

Bishopstoke Memorial Hall
  • Comment

Eastleigh Borough Council in Hampshire is seeking an architect for a £1.5 million redevelopment of the Bishopstoke Memorial Hall

The team chosen for the estimated £50,000 contract will complete a feasibility study exploring options to either refurbish or rebuild the 1950s community centre, which is in the Bishopstoke Conservation Area and nearing the end of its useful lifespan.

The project, backed by the hall’s owner, Bishopstoke Parish Council, aims to regenerate the historic venue which is home to the Bishopstoke Players amateur dramatics society and contains a performance hall with stage, backstage area, kitchen and toilets.

In its brief, the council says: ‘The timber-framed construction has external shiplap cladding and hardwood boarding to the inside walls. The rear of the building has been constructed in traditional brick and blockwork and is likely an extension to the original building. The roof is made up of asbestos cement roof sheets and boarded internally.

‘In its current condition, the Memorial Hall is nearing the end of its useful lifespan. The building requires significant modernisation, or, if the only viable option, a complete rebuild. The scheme should include access and car parking.’

Bishopstoke is a small village around one mile east of Eastleigh on the banks of the River Itchen in Hampshire. 

Proposals for the overhaul should be ‘robust and sustainable, taking on board environmental standards, life cycle costing and the equalities act’.

Applicants must be RIBA accredited and hold experience of similar size projects.

The deadline for applications is midday, 15 October.
