New purpose-built Sports Hall to provide high quality indoor sports facilities, with associated changing facilities and reception area.
As part of the CIF Bid, Barker Associates provided a full Architectural Feasibility Study, Options Appraisal, Feasibility Cost Plan and associated specialists surveys and reports such as Asbestos, Topographical, Soil, Ground Surveys and Arboricultural Studies. Massing and Master Planning were also undertaken. To maximise the chances of success the finalised Sports Hall design, location and form was submitted for full planning approval concurrently during the bid development phase. All sections of the bid, namely Project Need, Project Planning and Value Money were covered fastidiously with additional supporting information that fully justified the requirement for this bid to be awarded.
Hockerill Anglo European College were awarded around £1.2Million towards the project cost. We were delighted to have assisted in this project and Barker Associates have since been appointed to take the full project delivering forward.
The Sports Hall will provide much-needed facilities for the college and informal recreational use for the community.
The site is adjacent to a Conservation Area therefore the design responds and respects the historic context and buildings in the College and the surrounding area.
Thank you to the Barker team involved in securing our Condition Improvement Fund bid for the Sports Hall. Having been previously unsuccessful in gaining the funding, we are appreciative of the knowledge and professionalism you have brought to the application process.
Competition was intense. To be successful at this level of competitiveness is testament to the quality of advice you brought to the process.
