‘A unique form of community-based regeneration’
+3 Architecture have built on their masterplan for the regeneration of Redcar Town Centre by being re-commissioned by the Local Authority to design and deliver the new, flagship £31M Leisure and Community Heart project. Working alongside Drivers Jonas Deloitte, S&P Architects, Buro Happold, AECOM and OOBE the scheme was won in competition and will be the largest regeneration scheme in Redcar’s recent history.
The ground breaking design will combine a new leisure centre, civic facilities, a business centre, car parking and major public realm improvements into a single, comprehensive redevelopment that knits together a previously fragmented part of the town. It will bring together a range of council functions into a dedicated civic hub alongside a state of the art leisure centre that contains 3 pools and an innovative flow-rider. A new business centre will also provide accommodation to support fledgling businesses in the region. All these functions will be located around a new civic square which itself it tied back into the surrounding fabric via a tree-lined boulevard.
The design process has been characterised by a comprehensive approach to engagement which has involved the public, stakeholders and all levels of the Council (including officers and Members). This rigorous and carefully considered approach has ensured that the design meets the needs of all occupiers and operators and that the project has progressed in an ordered and structured manner.
The scheme is being procured under the SCAPE framework with Wilmott Dixon and is currently on site with a completion date of mid-2013.
