Tullamore Community Arts Centre Architectural Design Competition

The RIAI is administering an open, two-stage competition for the architectural design of Tullamore Community Arts Centre for the competition promoters, Offaly County Council.

8 Apr 2011 – submission deadline

The vision and intention of developing a multidisciplinary community arts centre in the heart of Tullamore, stems from a much documented need to converge and focus the creative potential of Tullamore; its artists, its young people and the wider community. The activity at the centre will harness and be a catalyst for this creative potential by providing opportunities for participation in the arts as well as presenting a dynamic programme of local, regional, national and international arts events.

Tullamore occupies a central position in County Offaly and it has been the county town since 1833.

The site is very centrally located and is within a short walking distance of the main shopping streets. The total subject site has an area of approximately 1.08 ha (2.68 acres) and is an irregularly shaped plot of land. The schedule of accommodation required totals 1,600m². The project budget to include construction, fit out, VAT and all fees is in the region of 2.8 million euro to 3 million euro.

Once a competitor registers to take part in the Tullamore Community Arts Centre competition, they have until 8 April 2011 to submit their entries. Each entry will consist of one A1 size sheet of information. The winners of the competition will be announced in July 2011.
