HQ for the Metropolitan Police Service

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is delighted to announce the launch of a new design competition on behalf of the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) and Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) to create a new central London HQ – replacing their existing New Scotland Yard building.

Deadline for receipt of expressions of interest is 2.00pm on Thursday 27 June 2013

The new HQ, to be called Scotland Yard, will involve the redevelopment of the existing and currently unoccupied Curtis Green MPS building located on the Victoria Embankment, London, SW1.

The Curtis Green Building named after architect William Curtis Green sits within the Whitehall Conservation Area between the Norman Shaw Building and the Ministry of Defence. It faces onto the Victoria Embankment with views across the River Thames to London County Hall, Westminster Bridge and the London Eye.

The Invited Design Competition provides architects/practices with the opportunity to produce a design for the renovation of this landmark in one of London’s most important and historic areas – to provide a modern, flexible and secure office environment for the MPS. The Curtis Green redevelopment will provide a state-of-the-art HQ for the MPS that also respects the heritage and location of the building and the need to deliver value for money for the MOPAC and the Met.
