The RIBA Competitions Office has been appointed to run a new open design competition on behalf of a private client for the design of a new office building, to be built on a prominent location close to Preston City Centre.

This is a unique opportunity as the client has high aspirations for an exceptional building that will have a strong visual presence in a prominent location at the entrance to a major business park. The building must provide modern, flexible accommodation - a high quality office environment for many years to come. The competition brief is not prescriptive about the interior layout of the building – competitors will be asked to think about the creation of an attractive and efficient working environment, a building that is attractive and welcoming, designed with quality materials, and with flexibility to accommodate changes in terms of use and configuration.
