Contractor Appointed for Durham History Centre
Kier Construction has been chosen to deliver the new £14m Durham History Centre, designed by Ryder.
The works include the refurbishment of the nineteenth century Grade II listed Mount Oswald Manor House, to turn it into a local history hub, bringing together archive, heritage and registration services at a single location. It will also include the relocation of Durham Register Office to the site.
The history centre will provide a secure future for more than five miles of county archives, charting almost 900 years of history, which are currently stored at County Hall. It will also provide a home for historic registration records, the historic environment record, local studies collections and the DLI collection.
Ryder and Kier have worked together on a number of schemes in the Durham area, including New College Durham’s STEM Building and Durham County Council Headquarters.Read more: Durham County Council
The proposed development, designed by Ryder Architecture, would bring together archive, heritage and registration services for the county.
