Replacing a 1950s "Uber-Shed" with a purpose-built sports facility and meeting space

The objective of the project is to replace the old pavilion with a building that is more in keeping with participating in sport in the 21st century, incorporating a multipurpose community space, in order to refresh and regenerate sporting opportunities in the community and create a new community hub.

What we'll deliver:

  • demolish existing pavilion and rebuild
  • relocate and widen access gate

Why it's a great idea:

The facilities managed by the charity consist of a number of sports pitches and two buildings housing changing rooms, toilets and a basic kitchen. One of the two buildings, known as the Old Pavilion, dates from the late 1950s and, despite a degree of refurbishment some years ago, is in an advancing state of dilapidation. Many of the toilets and wet facilities are non-functioning, either through vandalism or decay. The arrangement of the changing rooms is not aligned with current sport national governing body (NGB) policies on, for example, child protection, so the junior teams playing at the site are not able to use the changing facilities at all. Additionally, the current design is not compliant with disability access regulations and thus excludes disability sport participation. Overall, it provides a cold, unwelcoming and unpleasant experience and is undoubtedly a contributory factor to the decline of participation in the team sports based at the site.

Steps to get it done:

Promoting community cohesion: In addition to providing a top class sports facility, the design will incorporate a community space that will be available for community, social and educational use, which in turn will contribute towards the long-term sustainability of the facilities.
