Downsend Range

The Downsend Range is our contemporary schools pavilion. The pavilion is designed to perfectly suit both pupils and spectators. The pavilion has changing facilities on the ground floor which are large enough to cater for different sports and different users. The first floor is designed to suit parents, teachers and spectators with a generous social area and kitchen. A lift and disabled WC helps provide access for all. A decking area surrounds the first floor balcony which provides an excellent spectator spot to watch the sport.

Materials & Finish

The Downsend Range is designed to suit a more contemporary finish. This pavilion is clad in a mixture of larch timber shiplapped panels and render. The roof is designed to be a glulam timber roof with a rubber finish. The building, in order to keep down costs, is prefabricated so delivery and then erection of the shell of the building is very quick, with this taking usually around two-four weeks. The building arrives with the groundworks in place so that it can be assembled quickly on site. This is crucial as most schools projects are completed during the summer holidays so that disruption to school activity is kept to a minimum. Once the shell is constructed, our team will fit out the full interior layout. The pavilion comes with a non-slip external quality rubber flooring on a ramp to allow for disabled access and is designed to protect against studs and spikes. From an environmental perspective, the highly insulated composition of the building envelope means that the pavilion is extremely energy efficient and sustainable. This will help keep energy bills to a minimum once the building is in use.


The building has been specifically designed to separate the changing space from the social area so that either area can be used independently. The changing rooms come with benches with storage underneath, showers, a toilet and a sink. There is an umpires changing room and toilets for all which are accessed from the clubroom including a disabled WC. A plant room handles the services that run through the building. There is a generous social space which contains a kitchen space. Views onto the pitches can be accessed from the kitchen, as well as the clubroom, through the large sliding folding doors to ensure that spectators can witness the action from every aspect of the building. The size of the kitchen is dependent on your requirements and we have a wide variety of choices for kitchen ranges to give you an idea of the finishes potentially available. A large decking area is finished on top of a steel section to provide an external viewing point for spectators.
