Belfast Harbour Commissioners BHC is procuring the design and build of a piece of public art to be located in a pedestrianised square in the City Quays Development. The piece of art will be placed proximate to the entrance of a 9-story 4 star hotel to be constructed in City Quays.

The artwork is to be constructed by the winning applicant on the basis of the successful design concept. Applicants should be aware that the site will be part of another on-going contract and should bear this in mind when completing the Response Document.

The design concept must be aesthetically pleasing, original and distinctive while also demonstrating that practical, cost effective structural engineering and building services solutions have been considered. The proposal must represent an original and interesting idea. It is envisaged that the art solution will be no higher than 14 metres and may act as a geographical point of reference/meeting signpost in the area.


The design contest is not limited to qualified professionals or consultants and BHC welcomes applications from all persons provided the estabilished minimum requirements.


The winning applicant will be required to take the lead designer responsibilities and design, construct and install the piece of art within budget and within the agreed timescale.
