Work has begun on architect RMJM’s scheme to transform the historic Woodhorn Colliery in Northumberland into a cultural attraction.
The scheme, which includes a mining museum and the county archives building, is housed beneath a sculptured, serrated roof that is inspired by historic coal-cutting machinery. The roof is formed by seven tapered steel blades, which will be supported by triangular steel columns. RMJM is architect and engineer on the project, Bovis Lend Lease is main contractor and Gardiner & Theobald is QS. The scheme is due for completion in spring 2006.
