The Woodland Trust are seeking experienced professionals to quote for the design, manufacture and installation of a new visitor centre in Hainault Forest.
As the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity we protect, create and restore trees and woods for the benefit of people and wildlife; they are nature’s treasure troves and we want to heighten people’s connections with them. To achieve this, we want to meaningfully engage wider, more diverse audiences at Hainault Forest to create impactful, memorable experiences to the stories of our forest.
Summary of brief
We are looking for an individual or organisation with proven experience in successful visitor centre creation, to establish and deliver interior design solutions, manufacture and fit out that align with our core message, aims and established themes.
Working with the footprint of the to be newly renovated visitor centre building, which is located within the Hainault Forest Country Park we are part of a fantastic renovation of the visitor facilities of the forest. We are looking for a VC to develop a welcome and orientation experience for visitors to the area that will also become a “springboard” for encouraging WT target audiences to explore the ancient forest.
It is expected that this VC will be open to the public in August 2022.
