Design team tender relaunched for £21m Chelmsford leisure centre

  • Comment

Chelmsford City Council (CCC) is once again recruiting a design team to redevelop its 1960s Riverside Ice and Leisure Centre

Planned to complete in 2018, the estimated £21 million project will create a new pool, training area, fitness suite and multi-storey car park on the prominent Victoria Road site.

The new facility will be constructed on a car park and when complete the existing leisure centre – constructed in the 1960s – will be demolished.

A nearby ice rink and sports hall – which has been home to the Chelmsford Chieftains ice hockey team since 1987 – will meanwhile be retained.

CCC withdrew a previous tender for the design team role – launched last summer – due to a ‘potential conflict of interest’ with one of the bidding parties.

The tender process has now been relaunched to ‘ensure complete fairness and transparency going forward’, according to a council spokesperson.

Up to six teams will be shortlisted for the estimated £1.6 million design contract. Consortia bids are not permitted and the winner will be expected to deliver a range of services either on its own or with an integrated supply chain.

Documents must be requested by 12noon on 28 January and the deadline for applications is 12noon on 5 February.
