Rogers library costs remain unchanged

  • Comment

The claims by councillors that the cost of Richard Rogers Partnership's (RRP) Birmingham library 'may double to over £300 million' (AJ 9.9.04) are wildly inaccurate. Nine months ago the cost of the project was estimated by independent quantity surveyors at £130 million, inclusive of fit-out, fees and inflation to 2008.

Since this estimate, no further design work has been carried out.

RRP remains enthusiastic about a project that will be a key catalyst for the ongoing regeneration of the city's Eastside area.

Robert Torday, on behalf of the Richard Rogers Partnership, London W6
