We are delighted to announce that the Foster Lomas / Webb Yates team have been shortlisted by RIBA for the Great Fen Visitor Centre competition.

'Great Fen is an internationally acclaimed vision, one of sweeping scale and ambition. Over the next 50-100 years, more than 3,000ha of largely arable land will be transformed into a mosaic of habitat: open water, lakes, ponds and ditches; reedbed; fen, bog and marsh; wet grassland; dry grassland; woodland and scrub. The restored landscape will be created around and between Holme Fen National Nature Reserve and Woodwalton Fen National Nature Reserve - precious fragments of wild fen that are home to rare and endangered species of fenland plants. The new Visitor Centre will be the Great Fen's hub - an essential part of the evolving fenland landscape, to stimulate exploration and serve its visitors to the highest standards.'
