Craven District Council is seeking a conservation architect to regenerate the Grade II-listed Skipton Town Hall
The project will restore the concert hall, museum and gallery inside the landmark 1862 Neo-classical-style building on Skipton High Street.
A tourist information centre, reconfigured backstage area and council offices will also be required.
The winning team must include an AABC-registered architect and a museum designer. Only the lead consultant will be directly appointed with other consultants expected to sub-contract to the multi-disciplinary team.
According to the contract notice: ‘The designs must be sympathetic with the age of the building whilst being accessible to all and flexible to enable a variety of uses.
‘Concept proposals to RIBA Stage 2 have been prepared and a Heritage Lottery Fund Stage 1 application to fund improvements to the museum and gallery area has been awarded a first-round pass.’
Once selected, the team will submit an HLF Stage 2 funding bid and develop the scheme up to RIBA Stage 7.
The project is the third phase of improvements to the building. Earlier stages delivered a new accessible entrance, ground floor toilets and commercial spaces.
Up to six teams will be shortlisted for the estimated £300,000 contract. The deadline for applications is 12pm on 4 July.
