Hopkins to revamp Herne Hill Velodrome

  • Comment

Olympic velodrome architect Hopkins has been confirmed as part of the team looking at the redevelopment of the historic Herne Hill Velodrome in south London

The practice will investigate the possible replacement for the existing pavilion, as well as devising a scheme for the inner field at the track which is the last remaining venue from the 1948 Olympic Games.

Project backers the Herne Hill Velodrome Trust, has also appointed project manager Jackson Coles, planning consultants Rolfe Judd Planning and cost consultants Deloitte to help carry out initial feasibility studies.

Once the pavilion feasibility work is completed, the trust will look to appoint a full planning team, including an architect for the building.

Ian Drake, chief executive of British Cycling said: ‘I’m very pleased to see another step being taken in the journey of Herne Hill’s return to being a first-class facility.’

Mike Taylor, senior partner at Hopkins Architects added: ‘There is no doubt this is a great project for cycling in London, so we are delighted that the trust is now in a position to appoint a professional team, and we can start to look in earnest at the opportunities to increase the future level of participation by getting the most out of the available site.’
