Hunt begins for Lahore cricket stadium designer

Lahore
  • Comment

FCC University in Lahore, Pakistan, is seeking an architect for a new 10,000-capacity cricket stadium in the centre of the Punjab capital

Supported by the Pakistan Cricket Board, the project will deliver a new ‘world class’ venue for the women’s national team and the university’s student team.

The winning practice will deliver a prefeasibility study for the proposed ground featuring a concept design and cost estimates.

They will also produce an evaluation of site constraints, project phasing and implementation, asset management, and a suitable location, access and circulation approach for the main stand and club house.

According to a contract description: ‘The university is looking for credible UK organisations or businesses who have experience in providing technical assistance for designing cricket stadiums in the UK as well as in other cricket-playing nations. The pressing need is for an initial prefeasibility study.’

Located in the north-east part of Punjab province near the border with India, Lahore is the second largest and most populous city in Pakistan after the capital Karachi. The settlement was the centre of the Moghul and Sikh empires and is today home to several world heritage sites and 13 universities.

City-centre landmarks include the Lahore Fort, Lahore Museum, Montgomery Hall , the recently-constructed Grand Jamia Mosque and Paksitan’s largest cricket venue: the Gaddafi Stadium (pictured).

Founded more than 150 years ago, FCC (Forman Christian College) University is one of the oldest institutions in Pakistan. The new stadium will be erected on land owned by the university in the central part of the city which is already home to an existing cricket ground.

The deadline for applications is 30 November.
