Once again we are developing local communities with the provision of a flexible space for leisure and social activities.
Following a competitive tender Deeley Construction secured the project to build a singlestorey community centre. The scheme had been designed to be a low-carbon emitting, facility which provides additional biodiversity to the area.
The structure is a traditional brick and bock structure with long pitched roof featuring a ‘dummy dormer’ space. This space has high level windows installed to allow lighting. The cavity walls are 468 mm, a key feature for making this a highly sustainable scheme.
Externally a new block paved car park and recreation area was created. The installation of an acoustic fence minimised disruption to the nearby neighbours. A significant amount of landscaping works boosted the level of biodiversity on site. This included a mixture of wildflower meadow, tree and native shrub planting as well as habitats for wildlife.
A particularly tricky element of the scheme involved us building over an Oil Pipeline which crossed various parts of the site. We therefore liaised with the British Pipeline Associations to work out a specification for a 200mm reinforced concrete slab over the roadway and creation of a track mat during the construction phase.
