During lockdown, with many sports facilities out of use, our architects have been working with Pitstone Parish Council in Buckinghamshire to expand and improve their local sports pavilion.
With delivery under a design and build contract taking place over the lockdown months, we are excited to announce that the project completed in December 2020 and is now set to reopen following lockdown.
The Pavilion required updating and modification to meet current Sport, Social and changing facilities requirements. And with more robust external cladding applied to the wall and roof, wayward shots off goal hitting (and damaging) the building will no longer be an issue for the teams using the facility! Working within a limited budget, the project was delivered well under the established cost budget.
In tandem the ambition was to expand and improve the social facilities to widen its use. By rearranging and expanding the changing rooms, we created an enlarged team changing area, additional changing facilities for match officials, and a first aid room. This now meets Sports England and league requirements. Further improvements included improved catering, a larger social area, improved toilet facilities together with turnstile access to the football pitches and improved groundsman’s accommodation.
Great to work with the council and the contractor Nevilles on this valuable community project.
