Whitstable & Seasalter Golf Club

In 2018, works began on a single-story clubhouse to replace the old/existing build. The club needed more function space and upgrades to the members’ facilities. The construction of the new club house was strategically co-ordinated to allow the existing clubhouse and golf course to remain in full operation during the works. The foundations involve a series PFA piles connected to reinforced ground beams to support a suspended beam and block floor. The main structure comprises a complicated pitched steel frame forming vaulted ceilings and cantilevered overhangs. Slate coverings enclose the dipped-designed roof which include Cupola ventilation shafts. Traditional cavity masonry walls, some with a rendered finish on blockwork from the envelope. Windows and doors form a large percentage of the external cavity wall space, allowing stunning views across the golf course from the bar and restaurant space. Upon completion of the new building, the original clubhouse was demolished to allow external works to take place, framing the new build with concrete slabs, greenery and an outdoor seating area.
