Design Competition for Bat & Ball Centre, Sevenoaks

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Competitions and Sevenoaks Town Council announce an invited design competition for a new Community & Conference Centre in the Bat & Ball area of Sevenoaks, Kent.

Sevenoaks Town Council is committed to providing good quality, fit for purpose facilities for residents of the town. Some current community facilities are approximately 30 years old and are no longer deemed fit for purpose today. The current Sevenoaks Community Centre is located off Otford Road on the opposite side of the railway line to the Bat & Ball station building. Although extensively used for a variety of purposes, the fabric of this 30 year old single storey Community Centre building is becoming increasingly costly to maintain and upkeep in terms of heating.

The competition would be to design a new building which will need to include a large community events space (to seat up to 250 people), a small hall, kitchen area, nursery facility, toilets, lift, external play area and storage to the ground floor; with a staff room, offices, meeting /function rooms, toilets and kitchen, as well as housing the new Council Offices on the first floor.

The competition is open to registered architects and architect-led teams based in the EU and will follow the Restricted Invitation procedure. Sarah Williams, S Williams Architects is acting as the RIBA Adviser for this competition.

Following the expression of interest phase, a shortlist of 5 will be invited to submit design concepts and each team will receive an honorarium of £4,000 (+VAT) which will be paid following submission and presentation of Stage 2 design proposals at a clarification interview.

For further details and to enter please visit The closing date for receiving your expression of interest return is Thursday 12 March 2015 by 2pm.
