Hethersett Parish Council is seeking to appoint a qualified architect to meet the Council’s Design Brief to replace the existing changing block with a fit for purpose multi-use pavilion together with extending the current car parking arrangements at the Memorial Playing Field in Hethersett.
The Parish Council are seeking a well-designed building for the use of existing user groups (football, bowls and cycle speedway) and community groups (birthday parties, fitness classes, mother & toddler groups). It is envisaged that the construction will be brick but we are open to other forms of construction that are economic and energy efficient. The area has previously been subject to anti-social behaviour and consideration should therefore be given to graffiti and vandalism to ensure that the building can be cleaned/maintained easily. We would hope that the design would incorporate a number of energy efficient features such as energy efficient fabric; heating system; green water systems to make the building environmentally friendly, but these need to be kept within a reasonable budget. The building must also be fully accessible for disabled users.
The Parish Council expects the successful Architect to organise all required members of their project team to obtain all Statutory Approvals and Consultations including Football Association. To be responsible for managing all works on site whilst liaising with the Parish Council, from demolition through to completion with all necessary Certification including for all Professional Fees and Statutory Charges. Please provide a full breakdown of costs associated with each element of the work in the Fee Bid.
The Parish Council are hopeful that draft plans can be produced early in 2020 – date to be agreed with successful applicant.
