EP agrees bigger fees for Millennium Village designers

  • Comment

The riba has convinced English Partnerships to pay shortlisted teams on the second Millennium Village £100,000 each - four times as much as the beaten designers received on the first contest for Greenwich.

The vice-chairman of the riba's Brownfields First Initiative, Roger Zogolovitch, who persuaded ep that £25,000 was too low, said he was delighted to learn that ep was running a design-led competition for the village, at Allerton Bywater in the Leeds coalfield, and that abortive fees would now help compensate the entrants for the enormous amount of work involved. 'We are pleased ep now recognises that design and creativity pay dividends and are a vital ingredient in the process of brownfield regeneration,' he said.

riba president David Rock added: 'The low or non-existent fees paid even to successful entrants to architectural competitions have long concerned me.'

The riba is producing a video entitled Brownfields First, featuring the Allerton Bywater site, which will be available in September.
