CLRL, the company behind the delivery of the ambitious £16 billion cross-London railway scheme, is looking for a list of around 20 architectural practices to take care of the design of nearly 35 stations.
The announcement follows the AJ’s exclusive story last November (AJ 01.11.07), which reported that Crossrail bosses refused to confirm whether the architects who worked on the original proposals in 2004 would continue to be involved.
The likes of John McAslan + Parners, Wilkinson Eyre and Ian Ritchie Architects had been involved ,but each of the firms will now have to apply to become part of the 20-strong framework panel.
There will be seven new stations to be built as part of the Crossrail project, although the scheme is still awaiting royal assent, which is expected in the summer.
