Scope and Content

File documents the completed project for a restaurant at the Blackpool Zoo Park in Blackpool, England, for client J. Lyons & Co. Ltd. Initially the brief also called for the erection of five pre-fabricated Wimpy kiosks, of which at least one and possibly two kiosks were erected. The restaurant building is a square, clear-span, steel-frame building with its own kitchen and store rooms, and includes a cafeteria, a full service restaurant and bar, and offices. The restaurant dining room can be converted from one large space into two by means of a curtain on a track, removable barrier rails, and mobile cash and cutlery units. The exterior is timber-clad with tinted glazing. Existing conditions drawings show the existing site layout, landscaping plans and plans showing water supply and electrical services. Design development drawings and working drawings include preliminary interior perspectives, site plans, floor plans, reflected ceiling plans, utility plans, sections, elevations, axonometric views of interior, roof trusses, and structural system, construction details, and progress charts. Two sets of drawings that include plans, sections, and elevations, were possibly used for presentation purposes. Construction details are drawn on letter-size paper and show details for curtain tracks, exterior walls, and windows. A project schedule listing the remaining work is dated October 29, 1973. Consultant's drawings for catering, structural, mechanical, and electrical services are also included in the file. Over 300 detail drawings on letter-size paper are included in the textual records. Cedric Price visited the restaurant in 1988. Some material in this file was published in 'Cedric Price-Works II' (London: Architectural Press, 1984), 81.

Some reference drawings are attributed to H. Carpenter, Engineer, County Borough of Blackpool, and to Building Design Partnership.

Versa-Serve Ltd Catering Consultants, Briggs Amasco, Crittall-Hope, Archbell Greenwood Ltd Structural Engineers, Hall & Kay Limited, Campbell & Isherwood Ltd Electrical Engineers appear as consultants in this project.

Bovis: Fee Construction Limited appears as the general contractor for this project.

File contains design development drawings, presentation drawings, reference drawings, technical drawings, working drawings, photographic materials, and textual records.
