Wolverhampton seeks architect for infill homes

West Midlands
  • Comment

Wolverhampton Homes is looking for an architect to deliver up to 15 residential schemes on infill and former garage sites throughout the West Midlands city

The winner of the estimated £140,000 contract will work with Wolverhampton City Council’s arm’s length management organisation to develop plans for new homes on up to 15 separate sites.

The project follows an earlier £1.7 million pilot scheme, which delivered 12 new homes across a number of sites in the city.

According to the brief: ‘The client’s experience in delivery of new council housing is still developing and to meet its business plan objectives the client will need to rely upon the successful architect to produce good quality designs in line with the city council’s design and specification criteria and be able to offer practical design advice based on their experience gained from working in this market.

‘It should be noted it is the intention that this requirement for architectural services will be awarded to a single supplier who will be responsible for the delivery of the entire tendered works requirement. The consultant will be required to have sufficient capacity to provide architectural services for all sites simultaneously.’

The appointed team will develop the schemes up to planning consent and is expected to be novated to a contractor for RIBA Stages 3 to 7. The project is planned to complete in 2018.

The deadline for applications is 16 December.
