City of London interior architecture framework
Teams appointed to the four-year framework will have the opportunity to work on a range of interiors and renovation projects with the Square Mile local authority, which owns and operates more than 800 properties across and around London.
Ten teams will be invited to tender and up to six teams will be selected for the framework which will cover projects with a construction value of between £1m and £30m. The call for applications comes two years after an earlier City of London executive was announced.
According to the brief: “The City of London Corporation (the City) is inviting tenders for the supply of interior design services for interior and refurbishment type projects, including the refurbishment of commercial accommodation in ‘CAT HAS “. Standard.
The city occupies and operates over 800 homes in the following geographic locations: Square Mile, West End, East London, North London, Epping Forest, Buckinghamshire, Surrey, Heathrow and the Thames Estuary.
“These dwellings include corporate offices, schools, housing, police, income-generating investment properties, markets and commercial spaces, theater and concert halls and other individual real estate assets associated with the city’s open spaces and built environment in locations across the Greater London area.
The City of London Corporation is the municipal governing body of the historic center of the British capital, home to several thousand residents and many leading financial institutions. The organization owns various properties in London and the surrounding area, including developments such as the 1957 Lammas Green designed by Farquharson and McMorran at Sydney.
Last year the company – which aims to deliver 3,700 new homes over the next 10 years, including 700 new homes on its existing social housing estates and an additional 3,000 units on other sites elsewhere – said it would explore ways to reuse vacant office space, including creating 1,500 new homes by 2030.
The City of London Corporation is halfway through a series of ambitious projects centering on the creation of a new Culture Mile district which will transform the northwest corner of the Square Mile between Moorgate and Farringdon into a cultural hub over the next 10 next 15 years.
The district will include three major real estate projects: the transformation of Beech Street; the new Museum of London designed by Stanton Williams and Asif Khan; and a Barbican Center competition-winning renewal by Allies and Morrison and Asif Khan Studio.
In January 2020, Studio Egret West and HawkinsBrown won two competitions to regenerate the City of London Corporation’s Grade II* listed Smithfield wholesale market complex and surrounding public realm in the Culture Mile area.
Architecture00+Studio Weave won a City of London Corporation competition to rehabilitate the gardens and pavilion at Finsbury Circus two years ago and Morris+Company and Freehaus won an international competition for a £19million redesign of the iconic City of London School in the Square Mile last summer.
The latest framework will operate from 2023 for four years and cover a variety of other projects. Applications will be assessed 100% on quality.
Applicants must hold £10 million of liability insurance, £10 million of employers’ liability insurance and £5-10 million of professional indemnity cover.
The deadline for applications is July 1 at 2 p.m.
