The City of Hull and the Flemish Environment Agency are inviting the Flemish government engineer team to draw up plans for the expansive perimeter of the De Presse Sports Hall. The mission includes developing a design for the park, the gymnasium, and the covered car park, opening the Senne and linking the park to the urban and residential fabric (near Monseigneur Senciestraat). “By working with the Flames Baumeister team, we want to provide a thoughtful, contemporary and ambitious interpretation of this renewed green heart of our city,” the board says.
Planning RUP De Bres
Until July 8, everyone can refer to the initiation and operation notes to prepare the De Bres Municipal Spatial Implementation Plan. The city council said: “With this RUP, we want to provide all parking spaces near the underground gym.” “That way you get a large area above ground in the heart of the city.”
Hill wants to fully integrate this space with a keen interest in sports and entertainment. “In order to be able to realize all ideas for the future, we will first be modifying a number of destinations in the De Bres Spatial Implementation Plan (abbreviation RUP),” he continues. “We are also setting the rules for urban development that environmental permits must comply with in the future. These rules must ensure that the creative design process can be realized for designers and architects.”
Flemish team engineer
The city does not want to go overnight to make concretely ambitious plans. This is why the City of Hull and the Flemish Environment Agency are seeking the expertise and vision of the Flemish government engineer team to select the designer. The city is working with the Flemish Environment Agency on this open invitation, as it funds Senne’s opening work.
“The mission includes developing a design for the park, the gymnasium, the covered car park, opening the Senne and linking the park to the urban and residential fabric (at the level of the Monseigneur Senciestraat). This is the mission of the full study of the redevelopment of the Bres region and the development of the so-called urban development plan, landscape design and architecture”, Seemingly.
This design process works hand in hand with SIP Planning. The Flemish Governmental Engineers Team will launch an open call for this purpose in June. In order to attract famous designers to this competition, Halle and the Flemish Environment Agency present drawings. For example, the four nominated designers selected by Flamesboomester’s team receive a fee of € 15,000 for their design research after an open call. A fee of € 60,000 is provided to the winner who is also finally allowed to develop the master plan of the site. Selection is always based on a number of selection criteria and established awards. The city funds about 80% of the projected fees, and the Flemish Environment Agency is responsible for 20% of the projected fees.
“We will announce the winner at the beginning of 2022. This will be followed by a new consultative moment in which the various sub-designs will be explained. Then they will be further finalized and the first environmental permits can be submitted.” City council concludes.
