Sheppard Robson to design peace centre - in Middle East

  • Comment

Sheppard Robson has won a clutch of high-profile projects worth more than £200 million, including a Centre for Conflict Resolution in the Gulf state of Qatar. Practice director Tim Evans said it was 'topical' to be considering such a venture in the sheikhdom, given the events in the Middle East.

Other major Sheppard Robson wins closer to home include a Centre for Creative Change in Birmingham. This is understood to have been won in competition against practices such as John McAslan and Partners, Hodder Associates, David Morley and Grimshaw, whose Lottery-funded Millennium Point leisure and offices scheme sits nearby in Digbeth.

The £30 million building - branded 'C3' - is for the University of Central England, and could form part of the city's bid to become European Capital of Culture in 2008. Culture minister Richard Caborn said the government expects to announce the winning city in early June.

The practice has also claimed job wins worth £200 million in the biotech, education and media sectors. The high-profile projects will be officially unveiled in the coming weeks.
