Main place of performance: Lower Lea Valley/East London (specifically including Three Mills Green and East India Dock Basin).


Short description of the contract or purchase(s):

Provision of team design services including architectural, landscape architect, structural/civil engineering and services engineering.
The successful design team(s) will take this project from inception to handover. The Client may request that certain members of the team are novated for the construction phase of the project.
The overall Lea River Park scheme will include the creation of 6 new park areas joined by linear parkland (the ‘Fatwalk’) in the Lower Lea Valley, between East India Dock Basin on the Thames in the South, and the Olympic Park in Stratford to the North. At this stage, design teams will be bidding to work on Phase 1 of the project, which involves the creation of an uninterrupted parkland link (the first phase of the 'Fatwalk') and 2 proposed major destinations at East India Dock Basin and Three Mills Green, near Bromley-by-Bow.

The link should be capable of accommodating pedestrians and cyclists and will involve extensive landscaping works. Innovative design solutions may be required to overcome some of the existing physical barriers to the first phase of the Fatwalk in order to maintain the necessary continuity of the parkland.

The Phase 1 appointment may also include for the creation of a mixed-use park destination at Three Mills Green, incorporating community landscaped gardens, sports pitches and facilities for outdoor events, and there may be the opportunity to further extend the appointment to cover the creation of another major mixed-use destination at the East India Dock Basin which will include facilities such as dining and refreshments, a floating lido, bike hire centre, community amenities and event space whilst retaining its existing heritage and ecological value.

The Client reserves the right to make appointments based on individual projects or a combination (e.g. Fatwalk and Three Mills Island or just Fatwalk).
