In 2016, we completed works on site for the construction of a new sports pavilion at the Spearpoint Recreation Ground in Ashford. This project was carried out for Ashford Borough Council under a design and build contract, which was competitively tendered for back in August 2015.
The project was officially awarded to us in December 2015 and we commenced demolition works at the beginning of February 2016. Before starting on site, we were involved in a very efficient design process with the project delivery team at Ashford Borough Council and the Football Federation.
The works comprised of the demolition of the existing derelict pavilion which was replaced by a new modern facility, built in full consideration of the recommendations of the Football Federation. The new pavilion includes six new changing rooms, officials change, communal facilities and toilets. A suitable efficient hot water and heating system was installed to provide instantaneous hot water to the showers despite the infrequent use of the building. At the end of the project, we resurfaced the existing car park to create adequate parking for the building users and were able to finish six weeks ahead of schedule.
On completion, this project was nominated as a finalist at the 2017 LABC Building Excellence Awards in the category of ‘Best Public Service Building’.
