RIBA seeks local architect for Newcastle HQ overhaul

  • Comment

RIBA Enterprises is on the hunt for a north east-based architect to overhaul its central Newcastle headquarters

The £1 million project – open only to RIBA chartered practices and members – will refurbish and extend the organisation’s Grade II-listed Old Post Office home.

Planned to complete in 2015, the scheme will create a new base for up to 210 RIBA Enterprises employees alongside a gallery, lecture theatre and social spaces.

RIBA Enterprises chief executive Richard Waterhouse said: ‘With the rapid rise of BIM, we are seeing the construction industry undergoing huge change and we have invested significantly in technology and knowledge to support this. We are expecting further major growth and now need to invest in our facilities.’

He continued: ‘We want our site to become a centre for architecture and construction in the north-east and to play a pivotal role in the ‘BIM hub’ which has seen the region spearhead development of expertise in BIM. We are committed to providing fantastic facilities for our staff to support our ambition to become one of the region’s best employers.’

The deadline for expressions of interest is 2pm on 9 July.
