Sports Clubhouses have been awarded the design and build tender for the construction of the new cricket pavilion at Thame Cricket Club. The project also involves the demolition of the existing pavilion, additional car parking works and associated hard landscaping. Sports Clubhouses are contracted to both Thame Cricket Club and Thame County Council with all parties working together to produce this new exciting community facility. Works commence in January with all work scheduled to be completed by the end of October 2018.

Sports Clubhouses are a specialist design and build company with a proven track record of constructing similar sports buildings across the last 5 years all over the country. More information about Sports Clubhouses and their previously completed projects can be seen on their website www.sportsclubhouses.com.

The first part of the project will be to erect the new building which lies in front of the existing pavilions footprint which will enable the club to use the existing pavilion during the 2018 playing season. The existing building will then be demolished towards the end of the cricket season to provide the space that will then form the new nets and car park area.

Naturally there will be a certain amount of disruption but the project team will do everything possible to minimise this in order for business as usual to take place. For example, in order to keep traffic away from Church Road, all site vehicles will access the site from the gate at the corner of the ground by the Waitrose roundabout. Work on site will mainly occur during the hours of 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday and occasionally on Saturday.

Work has started on a new sports pavilion. The new building at Framlingham College will complement the existing pavilion and reflect the design of the new 6th Form Centre built in 2014 on the opposite side of the main cricket pitch.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The pavilion will provide a multi-use function space and additional changing rooms and spectators will benefit from a new coffee bar and spectacular views over the cricket and two artificial hockey pitches from inside and outside viewing areas. This will enhance the well-established range of tournaments and matches hosted at Framlingham College and provide children and parents at the College, its Prep School at Brandeston Hall and other visiting schools and community groups with a spectacular new facility.
The Headmaster Paul Taylor is delighted that work has begun: ‘This project has been in our plans for some years and is an exciting addition to our superb facilities. We have established a reputation for excellence in sport and I am pleased that this pavilion will enhance that position as well as offering a new centre for presentations, lectures and other aspects of a general education at the school. Although it is referred to as a ‘pavilion’, I am very pleased that it will offer a range of opportunities across the wider aspects of school life.’

 

Funding for the project is largely due to a generous legacy from the estate of Yela Fowler, which she made through the Society of Old Framlinghamians, in memory of her late husband Derek Fowler DFM who attended the College from 1935 to 1940.
The building is a designed by Sports Clubhouses based in Surrey and will be project managed by Synergy LLP. It is due to be completed in Summer 2017 and a significant element of the work will be undertaken by local contractor Hudsons Ltd based in Framlingham.

Harlow CC – New cricket pavilion http://www.sportsclubhouses.com/harlow-cc-new-cricket-pavilion/ Mon, 11 Jul 2016 15:17:26 +0000 http://sportsclubhouses.com/?p=7320

Sports Clubhouses are constructing a new 430 square metre timber frame pavilion for Harlow CC in Essex. The works commenced in the spring of 2016 and will be completed in October 2016.

Sports Clubhouses are constructing a new 430 square metre timber frame pavilion for Harlow CC in Essex. The works commenced in the spring of 2016 and will be completed in October 2016.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Harlow Cricket Club has a fantastic reputation for promotion and playing of cricket. Their existing facilities include two pitches and associated cricket nets supported by a pavilion that is rapidly disintegrating. The club boast a thriving youth section that is ever-increasing and the club are struggling to manage this growth in their current pavilion. The club, therefore, worked closely with Sport England and the ECB to put together a new 4-changing room cricket pavilion that would also provide an enlarged clubroom and supporting bar and kitchen facilities. The clubhouse will be situated a new site location in between the two new pitches. A new car park and access will also be constructed as part of the project in order to better support the building and to reduce local disturbances to the adjoining close.

The scheme was put together in 2014 and received formal planning approval that year. The successful design then went forward to a competitive tender process but the prices received were well in excess of the available budget (some were double the budget afforded). Sports Clubhouses were approached, following the tender process, to review the plans to date and to work with the club on a turnkey basis to see if the pavilion and associated works could be constructed within the available budget. Following detailed consultation, design review and an extensive value engineering process, a final price was agreed that tied in with the finance available and Sports Clubhouses were formally contracted to undertake construction works in 2016.

The new pavilion is being funded by local partners, the ECB and, largely, Sport England. The club would wish to publicly thank all of their funding providers for their assistance and commitment towards the project. The club already play an active part in the local community and this new pavilion will provide a fantastic resource for other community uses which will include the successful musical events currently hosted in the old pavilion by the club.

DESIGN

The new pavilion is being constructed in between the two existing cricket pitches with a new access road and car park accessed off Marigolds. The new car parking will mostly be a porous, permeable hard surface that will minimise any rain water overflow. New boundary treatments and fencing will help provide an attractive external appearance. The pavilion itself will be clad in a dark-stained timber and red Britmet tiling that will match the local Harlow architectural style. The building is constructed off a screw pile foundation system that is very environmentally friendly as it involves very little muckaway, no concreting and very little damage to the existing soil. The main clubroom space will include a raised ceiling that will provide fantastic volume and character to this community area. Sliding doors will provide access to the playing fields on both sides of the pavilion and excellent viewing of the matches from inside the clubroom.

BUILDING CONTENTS

The pavilion includes 4 ECB-approved changing rooms with associated toilet and shower facilities. The main clubroom provides space for functions, meetings and teas. A bar and kitchen are positioned either side of the function room and they will perfectly serve the players, spectators and visitors to the club. Toilets will be provided and these will, of course, include disabled and baby changing facilities. The building is constructed to comply with modern Building Control regulations which will include ramps and associated access for wheelchair users.

FURTHER PROJECT INFORMATION AND BUILDING HIRE

For more information on the project or Sports Clubhouses’ role then please contact Andy Macdonald (andy@sportsclubhouses.com). The club, when open, will be used for a wide range of activities and functions so if you are interested in using the facility then please contact the Club Manager Paul Baxter by email (paulbaxter.riverside@ntlworld.com).

Downsend School – New Support Pavilion http://www.sportsclubhouses.com/downsend-school-new-support-pavilion/ Wed, 10 Feb 2016 20:44:54 +0000 http://sportsclubhouses.com/?p=7304

The construction of a new support pavilion for Downsend School has commenced on site with the building due to be open in the summer of 2016. Sports Clubhouses will be providing the complete design and construction of this new exciting facility!

The construction of a new support pavilion for Downsend School has commenced on site with the building due to be open in the summer of 2016. Sports Clubhouses will be providing the complete design and construction of this new exciting facility!

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The school are developing every aspect of their sporting delivery both for the pupils and those other community groups and clubs who use the site. The school currently has a sports hall and swimming pool that is used by the public out of school hours and this is adequately served by changing facilities however, the astroturf pitch, the brand new cricket nets (developed with funding assistance from Surrey County Cricket Club and the ECB) and the main sports fields have no adequate locally sited changing facilities. This is barely manageable for the school usage and is extremely awkward for visiting teams. It is completely impractical for the external users to be allowed access to the changing rooms and toilet facilities in the main body of the school without incurring security and health and safety issues.

This pavilion seeks to provide a solution to this dilemma by providing a building that primarily houses two changing rooms and toilet facilities including disabled WC. In addition a small kitchen and some social space will also allow the building to provide basic refreshments to not only the teams that are taking part in external activity without again having to have to bring them onto the school site but it will also encourage and support parents and external visitors to stay and watch the sports activity. The final consideration is the housing of a small coaching office within the building which will allow a sports team to manage external events for which the building will be of central focus.

DESIGN 

The position of the building has been selected because of its central location adjacent to the astroturf pitch and the entry onto the sports fields but, also, because it can gain direct access from the car park allowing straightforward controlled entry to the sports facilities for external users and visiting teams without having to gain access to the main school site.

The building will be contemporary in character but will use timber cladding to help it to merge into the general natural surroundings of the sports field facing aspect will be fitted with large sections of glazing and sliding doors to enable those internal inside the building to have an excellent panoramic view of the facilities. The lower section of the building’s external walls will be rendered in a cream, acrylic finish and all windows and doors will be UPVC white and double glazed. The flat roof will be finished in rubber with fascias and soffits finished white and all rainwater will be removed from the roof using stainless steel downpipe features

ABOUT THE PROJECT

‘The Pavilion’ at Hesketh Park, Dartford will be opening for the start of the cricket season. Dartford Borough Council, the funding partner for the project, will be hosting a ‘preview’ evening on Wednesday 25th March for VIPs and local residents to showcase the new building!

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Dartford Cricket Club were in desperate need of a new pavilion as their existing facility was riddled with asbestos and was not fit for modern day requirements. Dartford Borough Council have a rich heritage of investing in sporting facilities with the outstanding successes at Princes Park and the Judo Centre perfect examples. They agreed to invest in the concept of a new cricket pavilion project that would house the cricket club but also act as a community facility for other local users throughout the year. The clear aim was to promote youth and adult sport in the park and, also, provide a world class facility for conferencing, weddings and other similar commercial activities in the borough. Just as importantly, the Council have been determined that these buildings must be architecturally striking and elegantly constructed using innovative and renewable technologies. The brief, therefore, was to create a similar ‘iconic’ design that would reinforce the overwhelming successes of these projects.

Sports Clubhouses were approached and invited to provide a solution. A design and manage contract (where all of the elemental packages were locally tendered) was approved with Sports Clubhouses providing the architectural design services and then, on site, the construction management of the project including coordination of the groundworks, the demolition of the existing building, the fit out of the pavilion and, finally, the car parking and landscaping works. They also carefully worked alongside the prefabrication partners, Eurokit Buildings Ltd, who supplied and erected the prefabricated building. The building covers 670 square metres over two storeys and, when complete, will be one of, if not the, best non-professional sporting pavilion in the country.

DESIGN

The building is constructed over two storeys using a prefabricated closed panel solution that relies structurally on the vast glulam timber beams that arch from one side of the pavilion to the other. The walls are a mixture of larch cladding, to the top, and acrylic render, to the bottom. The windows and doors are triple glazed aluminium which, alongside the substantial walls, provide incredible insulation and heat retention qualities. The large picture windows and doors to the playing side are constructed floor to ceiling height and spread across the clubroom spaces on both floors to provide excellent natural light and views over Hesketh Park. External shutters will provide additional security and mirror the existing pavilion. On the first floor, there will be a generous balcony that will provide excellent viewing of the cricket.

Internally the building is designed to provide the modern requirements and specifications of a sports pavilion whilst ensuring that the character and the heritage of the existing pavilion is not lost. Theground floor houses a reception and club shop that welcomes you into the clubroom. The ground floor clubroom has been designed to provide a more contemporary aesthetic. There is a commercial kitchen in place and a bar that looks onto the pitch. The changing rooms are built to a high standard with individual player lockers and storage for the home team and beautifully finished tiles to the showers. The purpose of this attention to detail has been to provide the players with that special touch that so often is lost in new pavilions with money often spent elsewhere. The first floor clubroom space is where the design really takes shape. The high ceiling and exposed glulam timber beams provide a fabulous, natural finish. A holding kitchen and a bar provide refreshments for all with the clubroom covering the entire width of the building albeit broken into three rooms by the installation of two sliding folding screens on either side. The purpose of this room has been to provide a more traditional club feel that will serve as a true haven to the spectators of the sport and, also, the other visitors to the facility. Other such high tech additions include audio visual throughout the building and the latest air conditioning technology. Access is provided for all with ramps into the building and lift from the ground to first floor.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Newdigate-Cricket-Club2Newdigate Cricket Club and Scout Hut have launched a joint project to provide a new timberframed pavilion that serves both users and acts as a community facility in the heart of Newdigate. The project team have been driving their funding bid over a number of years and are delighted that the project is finally ready for implementation.
Sports Clubhouses were invited to provide a design and price bid for the pavilion that already had a conceptual design that had received planning approval. Following an initial estimate the club and Sports Clubhouses have worked diligently over the last couple of months to bring the project within budget. Demolition of the existing buildings and general site clearance will commence next week with the final groundworks due to be completed before Christmas. The timberframe erection is due to be assembled in January with the final fit-out ongoing up until spring.

The club are still working hard on final fund sourcing to help complete the project and would welcome any assistance in this regard. Surrey County Cricket Club have confirmed that the project will be their 2015 Cricketforce Showcase project where volunteers will work with the club to provide general labour and landscaping work to assist with the final works. If you are interested in assisting with this project then please contact Andy Macdonald by email – andy@sportsclubhouses.com.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The committee at Horley Tennis Club have spent the last 5-10 years reviewing their existing pavilion which had started to become unusable. Horley Tennis Club - existingAs can be seen on the existing photo, the facility was in an extremely poor state. The long-term existence of the club was severely threatened every year that the building remained.

As a result the club decided to explore the possibilities of replacing the existing building with a new pavilion that would use the existing footprint and match the scale of the exising clubhouse. They were awarded some funding from Sport England and reviewed various construction methods and companies in an effort to find an affordable solution. Sports Clubhouses were approached in late summer 2013 and, working with the club, put together an affordable design and construction solution that was signed off in February 2014 with construction set to start in late March and finish in July.

DESIGN

The proposed solution provided by Sports Clubhouses was the demolition of the existing clubhouse and construction of a new timber framed pavilion. The pavilion houses two changing rooms, public toilets, storage and plant areas and a bar and kitchen that serves the generous clubroom. The clubroom has sliding folding doors that open out onto the external paved area that adjoins the tennis courts. This will provide a real connection with the playing aspect of the club for all those enjoying the pavilion facilities.

PROGRAMME

Horley Tennis Club - Latest

The timberframed pavilion was, following a four week demolition and groundworks process, erected in three weeks complete with the external and internal walls, roof with finish and timber insulated subfloor. The fit-out will now continue for around an 8 week period providing an extremely quick turnaround allowing the club to use the facility for the latter part of the summer.
