KCAP/Fakton/Ramboll scoop first place in competition to master plan FredericiaC 


KCAP Architects & Planners, together with advisors Ramboll and Fakton, have won an international competition for the urban development plan ‘FredericiaC’ in the Danish city of Fredericia. The plan for the 21ha brownfield site at the seafront of Fredericia will expand the existing inner city by 25% and accommodate a mixed urban program of 260,000 sq m. The project will establish a new destination in the region, create new correlations in the city and add a unique inner-city district in an attractive maritime environment. It has high ambitions on sustainability and is planned to be CO2-neutral.

The multidisciplinary team elaborated the winning proposal in an exceptionally open process, guided by FredericiaC, a partnership between the Local Authority of Fredericia and Realdania By. This form of competition allowed an ongoing dialogue with the organisation, the stakeholders, local citizens, experts and the competing design teams during the design process.

In their decision, the jury concluded: “Team KCAP's coherent and well-prepared physical and structural concept, springing from historical considerations about Fredericia's urban structure, has created special qualities in the form of a canal structure and a pronounced urbanism as the key means for a robust development strategy for FredericiaC. The proposal is distinct with its urbanism and its very strong concept of bringing great attractiveness and value to all lots.”

The all-embracing urban planning concept combines the best and most characteristic elements of Fredericia - a historic garrison town and a harbour city - in a coherent urban ensemble. The renaissance grid layout of the inner city is continued, extending view lines into the site. The impressive vaults around the city will be connected and made accessible by a new park, and the existing seafront will be enriched by a network of canals, strengthening the cities relation to the water.

In an interactive and inclusive process KCAP, Ramboll and Fakton will elaborate the winning proposal towards a definite development plan which is planned to be presented the first half of 2012.
