Stride Treglown withdrew because of the excessive financial risk involved in undertaking a project that did not follow the principles of ‘Rethinking Construction’ (Rethinking Construction 2001) Thus, in February 2003, the consortium (composed of RRP, BDSP, Arup and the construction company Taylor Woodrow) is reappointed. The team’s spokesman said that the team was delighted with the reselection: ‘We were not worried that the previous problems would damage our chances of reappointment. The fact is we have a fantastically strong design team.

It does not merely revolve around who is telling the truth. Attention is drawn to the specifics: who calculates the budget; how is it calculated; against what criteria is it assessed; and according to which programme? Rogers, yet again, explains that costs mount because of changing demands that RRP have willingly accommodated into the design. He contextualizes the projected £40 million cost by likening the scheme to ‘a big house’. Rogers says that: ‘If…the alarmist £40 million price tag is to be believed, this figure falls far short of many Millennium projects’ (The Architects’ Journal 26 July 2001).

The £27 million estimate that had loomed so large only 18 months previously was about to exceed £47 million by the time RRP was reappointed in 2003. A war between politics and architecture was now openly fought. This time it was not conducted publicly by building professionals in arbitration hearings. 9 million negligence claim against RRP because of the spiralling price (Betts 2003). Despite the fact that an independent adjudication found in favour of RRP, who are awarded £448, 000 in backdated fees, the Assembly continues to pursue Richard Rogers.
