FCBS wins Roman Baths job

  • Comment

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios has been appointed by Bath & North East Somerset Council as lead designers for a new project to open up new parts of the city’s Roman baths

The Archway Centre project will create a facility above a former city laundry and a World Heritage Site visitor centre, and will allow visitors to walk through previously closed spaces excavated by Bath’s city architect during the 1880s.

The project will cost around £5 million – the council was successful in bidding for £168,100 from the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2014 and is now submitting a second bid to the funding body.

Matt Somerville, project associate at FCBS, said: ‘This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to work in our home city on the most important Roman archaeological site in the country, a defining part of Bath’s World Heritage status.

‘This project will bring back to life a really important group of buildings which have, until now, been sadly overlooked and it’s a daunting but extremely exciting prospect.”

Other members of the design team include Bath-based structural and civil engineering firm Integral Engineering Design and mechanical and electrical engineers Method Consulting from Swindon.

Patrick Anketell-Jones, the council’s cabinet member for economic development, said: ”FCBS has proven in open competition that they have the skills and relevant experience to develop these plans.”
