|COMMUNITY BUILDING MELBOURNE|
We designed a new community building in Melbourne, South Cambs.
|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." N G Piper.

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. Quantity Surveyor Ian Kendall Associates
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.
