Leicester City Council is recruiting a lead consultant to regenerate its Grade II*-listed cathedral
The appointed team will oversee Leicester Cathedral’s ‘Common Ground’ regeneration programme from design through to delivery and manage all other consultants on the client’s behalf.
According to the contract notice: ‘Common Ground is a project which looks to carry out very significant work to Leicester Cathedral, in terms of preservation of the exterior, reordering of the interior and redevelopment of the “back of house” parts of the building.’
First recorded in 1086, the Norman church was restored by architect Raphael Brandon during the nineteenth century and transformed into a cathedral in 1927.
A new £2.5 million burial chamber and tomb for Richard III – whose remains were discovered beneath a council car park nearby – was completed by van Heyningen Haward last year.
The deadline for applications is 12noon on 22 April.
