Competition: Quay Stores, Milford Haven

Quay Stores, Milford Haven
  • Comment

Milford Haven Port Authority in south Wales is recruiting an architect for a £3.5-to-4 million overhaul of its Grade II-listed Quay Stores

The winning team will transform the dilapidated former warehouse complex overlooking the historic Milford Haven harbour into a ‘cultural cluster’ featuring a 100-seat restaurant and 400-seat multi-use auditorium for music, theatre and conferences.

The 1,011m² project, planned to complete in 2021, is part of a larger multi-million-pound masterplan to regenerate Milford Waterfront drawn up by Turley.

According to the brief: ‘The redevelopment of the Quay Stores building is part of the Port of Milford Haven’s wider strategic development of Milford Waterfront. The Quay Stores building is located on Victoria Road, Milford Haven. It is constructed in red rubble stone with two heavy lintel courses in pink granite and grey limestone dressings to openings with slate roofs.

‘The main building was built in the mid-19th century and became Grade II listed in 1975. The building has been unused for many years and is in a deteriorating state with large areas of the roof slates missing and internally the first floor has partially collapsed.’

The port of Milford Haven is the busiest harbour in Wales and handles around 20 per cent of the UK’s seaborne energy imports. The historic harbour area features a large marina for yachts along with several wharves and a dry dock.

The Milford Waterfront masterplan aims to regenerate the dock which is used by cargo vessels, ferries, fishing boats and cruise liners. A revised masterplan to deliver new hotels, shops, restaurants and up to 190 flats in the area was approved by Pembrokeshire County Council in June.

The latest project focuses on bringing the disused Grade II-listed Quay Stores back into use as a landmark new cultural complex.

Interested teams must submit two anonymous A1-sized display boards featuring external concepts, 3D illustrations, diagrams, sketches and supporting text. Details of two relevant projects completed within the last five years will also be required.

Bids will be evaluated 70 per cent on quality and 30 per cent on cost. The deadline for applications is 9am, 21 January.
