Stadium, Health Club and Social Hub

The project comprises a new football stadium for 3000 spectators extendable to 6000. There are three pitches including an all-weather sports surface which can be used for hockey and five-aside football. The masterplan for the project has minimal parking, with the incorporation of a sustainable travel plan encouraging local bus, tram, train and cycle use. The landscape design addresses the need for floodwater holding areas to meet Environment Agency standards.

The building includes the design of lettable areas to enhance the commercial sustainability of the Club, which can use or rent out the ancillary spaces for various uses such as community, multipurpose halls, creche, sports, health club and social spaces.

Construction of the main building is with a steel frame, with block and brick to ground floor areas and lightweight construction to the first floor. Ancillary buildings are loadbearing brick/ block construction. The project achieves a rare unity of architectural expression for a low budget community facility, using a simple palette of materials and colours.
