Cottenham Parish Council in Cambridgeshire is searching for an architect to redevelop its village hall
The winner of the £5,000 contract will regenerate an existing 50 year-old building which is ‘currently inflexible and not fit for purpose.’
The 120m² facility on Lambs Lane –featuring a stage, bar, kitchen and car park – is currently used for wedding receptions, children’s parties, classes and other functions.
According to the contract notice: ‘Some minor works are anticipated over the next 12 months but it is time to consider the feasibility of a more radical approach, possibly involving demolition and rebuilding of the hall.
‘This project seeks expressions of interests from architects who can convert our outline requirements into an outline planning concept for a viable multi-purpose two-storey building empathetic to the style of the nearby recently-expanded primary school.’
Located around 10 kilometres north of Cambridge, the Fen Edge village features around 2,500 households and is home to 6,200 people.
The deadline for submissions is 2 October.
