COMMUNITY BUILDING MELBOURNE

 
We designed a new community building in Melbourne, 
South Cambs.

We were commissioned by the Parish Council to design a new building to answer the varied functional requirements as set by the Client Committee. The building was designed on two levels to minimize the footprint and retain the maximum number of car park spaces. The parish office and meeting room were designed at first floor level served by lift access. The building was designed with a multi purpose main hall seating 104, a small conference room, library, Parish Office, kitchens, bar and WC facilities. Total gross internal areaes 436m\2.

COMMUNITY BUILDING CASTLE CAMPS

 
    
     A new multi purpose community building was
     constructed at Castle Camps, funded by 
     Lottery money.
     We were commissioned by the Parish Council 
     to design a new building in accordance with 
     the client’s brief.We prepared the design on
     an ArchiCAD computer programme, which allowed
     3D virtual reality film to be produced. This 
     enabled the clients to carry out an interactive 
     exploration of the building with camerers placed 
     in each room.       
     The lighting and stage lighting schemes were 
     designed into the virtual reality building model
     and their effects demonstrated. We designed the
     lighting schemes to take account of the different 
     functions in the main hall and integrated the 
     lights into the overhead beams.
          
     We put forward a complete design team to the 
     client committee.      
     
     The building was designed with a multi purpose 
     hall, small meeting room, bar, kitchen, storage 
     and wc facilities.
     
     We also provided a comprehensive brochure of the 
     project with the computer visual printouts,
     and Lottery funding was obtained at the first 
     submission.            
    
     Francis Wood, a Lottery outreach officer was using
     this project in her briefings as an example of a 
     successful Lottery funded project built on time 
     and on budget.        
              
     "An excellent example of a functional community
     building that sits harmoniously with its neighbours
     and the landscape."

    COMMUNITY BUILDING HAWSTEAD

    
    Hawstead Parish Council commissioned us to design a new
    community building to replace the flat roofed building 
    that had suffered irreparable wind damage.
    
    The Client committee set the accommodation areas and
    facilities to be provided. The building was designed
    to seat 100 in the main hall, sized for a badminton 
    court and carpet bowls with a small conference room, 
    kitchens, bar storage and wc facilities. The existing 
    building was sited on one of the largest village greens, 
    and in the design windows were arranged to take account 
    of the attractive views.
    
    Detailed Planning approval was received. 
    
    Gross internal area   296m\2.    


    COMMUNITY BUILDING COMBERTON  SOUTH CAMBS

  

	We designed and received Detail Planning Approval 
	for a new community building in Comberton.
	We were commissioned by the Parish Council to 
	design a new building to answer the varied functional 
	requirements as set by the Client Committee, and the 
	restricting site constraints. We had to design the 
	roof to avoid overshadowing the adjacent property 
	and we demonstrated this on the planning application
	by computer sun studies.
	Computer generated visuals and a 3D Power Point display
	were demonstrated at a village meeting. 
	The building was designed with a multi purpose main hall
	seating 122, plus a stage, actors change, small meeting 
	room, kitchens,	bar and WC facilities. 

	Total internal gross area 296m\2.

	A lottery funding application was unsuccessful.

    VILLAGE HALL MELDRETH   SOUTH CAMBS

  

	REPAIRS AND EXTENSION	

	We carried out on behalf of Meldreth Parish Council 
	a major extension and repair to the existing village hall.
	The hall was a prefabricated building, previously reused 
	and disintegrating. We designed new accommodation of 
	kitchen, bar, meeting room, storage, WC facilities and
	entrance around the existing hall. We provided the front 
	to have a pitched slate roof with timber boarding on a 
	brick plinth. The existing flat roofed hall was re-roofed
	and the walls rebuilt and clad to match the front extension.
