Competition: Hertfordshire housing

St Margaret’s Way, Leverstock Green
  • 1 Comment

Dacorum Borough Council is recruiting four architects for £17.5 million of new housing schemes across south-west Hertfordshire

Teams chosen for four contracts, worth an estimated £25,000 each, will draw up plans for a range of residential schemes for the local authority, which wants to deliver 350 new homes by 2020.

The projects are a £1.5 million development of 8-10 homes in Bulbourne Road, Tring; a £1.5 million development of 8-10 homes in Coniston Road, Kings Langley; a £4.5 million development of three houses and 30 flats in Eastwick Row, Hemel Hempstead; and a £10 million development of 56 units in St Margaret’s Way, Leverstock Green (pictured). Each scheme will require a separate design team.

In its brief, the council says: ‘The architect plays a vital role in the ongoing delivery of the council new homes delivery programme. You will be expected to ensure design and buildability of the works are carried out appropriately, safely and to the highest quality standards. This involves establishing a strong working relationship with Dacorum and their team.’

Dacorum is a 212km² district with a population of around 150,000. Around 50 per cent of the area is green belt and its principal settlements are Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted and Tring.

The deadline for applications is 27 June.

  • The Gov.uk notice for the Bulbourne development site it suggests the value of the contract (architect's fees) is £10K - £25K. The project brief describes the potential budget to be approx. £1.5M. At £10K the fee percentage would be 0.6%, at £25K it would be 1.65%. Is it possible to provide any sort of design service at that level of fee?
