consegna prima fase entro 10 novembre 2010

The Salford House 4 Life project, promoted by Salford URC, the Centre for Construction Innovation (CCI), NHS (Salford), Central Salford URC, Salford City Council and BRE, invites architect-led consortia to enter an open, two-stage competition to design and build a new exemplar family housing scheme, on a 1.45ha brown-field site in the heart of the Greengate area of Salford across from Manchester city centre.

The promoters are looking for a visionary development that will combine innovation and sustainability, and respond to existing and anticipated lifestyle, health and educational needs of the community. The aim is to develop new models of family housing close to the city centre, that will be capable of accommodating changing housing needs over a lifetime.

The competition will be in two stages, judged anonymously in the first stage. The authors of up to 10 schemes selected by the jury at first stage will be invited to competitive interview. A shortlist will then be drawn up. As part of the second stage up to 5 teams will be invited to develop their designs and procurement proposals for discussion at interview.
