£60 million project to be completed by 2012.

Contractor sought for Brent Civic Centre

Hopkins Architects has revealed its plans for the new Brent Civic Centre next to Wembley Stadium, north London.
The practice beat a number of other firms, including Ken Shuttleworth’s Make, to land the £60 million project, which is expected to be complete by the end of 2012.
The scheme will eventually house 2,000 Brent Council staff, as well as a ‘flexible’ community for up to 1,000 people, a new library and learning centre, a winter garden and a smaller Civic Hall.
There are also plans for a multi-purpose foyer with “grand civic steps”, an external terrace, café and a larger Registrars Service facility with a wedding suite and wedding garden.
Bill Taylor, managing director of Hopkins, said: “This is a major new London project for us – a terrific opportunity to bring together administrative and civic functions in a new world-class building.”
Recently, the local council launched a search for a contractor to build the “landmark”, which it sees as a catalyst to “help transform the way the council delivers services throughout Brent”.
Aktar Choudhury, Civic Centre programme director at Brent Council, said: “[This scheme] will form an important part of one of UK’s most exciting regeneration projects in a prominent setting opposite Wembley Stadium.
“We are seeking to create a community centrepiece in the heart of a modern development, and determined to build the UK’s greenest building.”
