Loughborough University is on the hunt for an architect to overhaul two 1960s buildings on its West Park Campus
Currently featuring science, engineering and research facilities – the two linked buildings were constructed using a pre-cast concrete frame and occupy an inclined site.
According to the contract notice, the two buildings currently host a ‘mixture of highly serviced laboratories, specialist research facilities, workshops, teaching and study areas, breakout spaces, offices and administration facilities.’
The 20,000 m² project will improve thermal efficiency, replace existing services, upgrade the internal layout and refurbish the building’s interior.
The notice continued: ‘The construction works shall take place in phases whilst the building is occupied. An essential duty of all members of the consultant team will be to contribute to the development of a decant and phasing strategy that will enable the works to take place with minimal disruption to the buildings’ occupants.’
A quantity surveyor, structural engineer, building services engineer and CDM coordinator are also sought in separate lots.
The deadline for requests to participate is 12noon on 15 May.
