Design team needed to overhaul London’s French Lycée

  • Comment

The French Lycée in London is seeking a design team for a £12.5 million renovation of its South Kensington home

Planned to complete in 2020, the phased 21,700m² project will upgrade seven separate buildings on the prestigious site built between 1850 and 1980.

Formally known as the Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle, the co-educational primary and secondary school has around 4,000 pupils and celebrated its centenary last year.

A substantial increase in pupils has seen the landmark complex, which includes two Grade II-listed structures, become ‘saturated’ in recent years, according to a project description.

The scheme will restore elevations, refurbish interiors, upgrade link buildings and deliver inclusive access for people with reduced mobility. A new ventilation system, lifts and modernised kitchen will also be included.

Existing satellite schools in Clapham, Fulham and Ealing, and a new school in Wembley, will allow the Lycée to manage student numbers on site so refurbishment may continue while the campus remains open.

The winning multi-disciplinary team will deliver a phased project featuring ‘several building sites coexisting with students for several years’.

Up to six teams will be shortlisted for the £900,000 contract and bids will be evaluated 40 per cent on quality and 60 per cent on cost.

The deadline for requests to participate is 12pm on 16 May.
