Following ongoing civic office projects for Wakefield and Doncaster Councils; Cartwright Pickard has been appointed to design a community building in Towcester.
The Cartwright Pickard-designed 3,800 sq m BREEAM Very Good building will be the centerpiece of South Northamptonshire Council’s £45m Towcester Regeneration and Civic Accommodation Project.
The community building will comprise civic offices, a library, council chamber and a variety of community uses.
Peter Cartwright, director of Cartwright Pickard Architects, said:
“We believe the design of the new community building demonstrates how a highly flexible and sustainable building can be developed to meet the needs of a local community whilst respecting the historical context of Towcester. A good news story is rare in the construction industry at the moment and we are looking forward to working with the team on delivering the scheme”
The project will be developed and delivered by Morgan Sindall Investments, with a masterplan designed by Chapman Taylor.
Ernie Battey, managing director of Morgan Sindall Investments, commented:
“We are delighted to have this opportunity to partner with the Council to fulfil their long standing vision for the regeneration of Towcester. Positioned at the very heart of this historic town we understand how important this project is for the community and look forward to delivering this high quality development with our sister companies, Lovell Partnerships Ltd and Morgan Sindall plc.”
Work is due to get underway next year and last around 15 months.
