The River Tees Rediscovered Landscape Partnership invites quotes from an experienced lead designer/artist who will be responsible for writing, designing, producing and installing on-site interpretation at the Tees Cottage Pumping Station and the neighbouring Broken Scar site. The commission will include the following elements:

The production of an overall interpretation plan that seeks to maximise the interpretative benefits of the wealth of information provided through the Heritage Report clearly setting out the priorities for the immediate future alongside the medium and long term aspirations for the site, while at the same time achieving a coherence and focus in the narrative itself that brings the story to life for visitors to the area.

The delivery of the short term priorities identified through the interpretation plan through the selective and critical use of a limited number of site based interpretative pieces. Great care will be taken to make sure that the delivery of this method of onsite interpretation is carried out only in places where the maximum value derived from having the site interpreted in this way will benefit the maximum number of people.

Each designer/artist submitting a proposal will be able to show through a CV that they have the experience and organisational abilities to develop and manage a varied interpretation project such as this.

Quotes should be submitted to Lucy Chapman, Partnership Manager, via email [email protected] by Wednesday 31st January 2018.

The commission will commence in February 2018 with the first phase of interpretation to be completed before the end of 2018.

  • Partnership/Consortium approaches to this work will be considered
  • Sites visits to the Tees Cottage Pumping Station can be arranged with prior notice if required
