Contractor sought for National Nuclear Archive
September 29 2014
Commissioned to provide a long-term storage solution for records of Britain’s civil nuclear programme the project has been designed to accommodate up to 30m digital, paper and photographic records.
Reiach & Hall were appointed as architects back in December 2009, drawing up proposals to RIBA plan of works stage 3 with Horner + MacLennan as landscape architects and Ove Arup engineers.
This saw a triangular form adopted to minimise visual impact and provide a degree of shelter with a blank facing wall dictated by archive regulations.
Work on the project is expected to get underway by summer 2015 – over four years after it was originally scheduled to have moved on site.
