Designer sought for Lancashire wetlands

  • Comment
The search is on for a design team to create a new visitor facility for a wetland nature reserve in Preston, Lancashire.

The Brockholes Wetland and Woodland Nature Reserve is part of the wider £59 million Newlands land regeneration scheme - Britain's largest ever environmental programme.

Backed by the Lancashire Wildlife Trust, the North West Development Agency and the Forestry Commission, the new visitor facilities will include a café, a shop, a gallery and education and meeting rooms.

According to the brief the scheme will have to 'aspire to be a carbon-neutral construction, drawing on local resources where possible'.

Entrants will be judged anonymously in the first stage, then a shortlist of five will be decided and will be invited to present their designs to a jury panel.

For further information on how to enter please telephone the RIBA Competitions Office on 0113 2341335 or visit www.architecture.com/competitions. The submission deadline is Wednesday 19 September 2007.
