Client: Shilbottle Community Hall Limited
Location: Grange Road, Shilbottle
Contract Value: £888,079.00
Contract Period: October 09 – August 2010
The works comprised the construction of a new community building which re-houses facilities which were accommodated in an existing welfare hall that was destroyed in a fire in 2008.
The accommodation includes multi-use rooms, games rooms, changing room facilities, referees changing rooms, main hall, kitchen, male and female toilets and a disabled toilet facility. We also constructed a new storage shed.
The construction consists of a reinforced ring beam and floor slab, steel portal framework complete with insulated timber frame panels with cladding applied. The roof at high level is constructed with purlins covered with metal profiled sheeting. The lower roof is formed with trusses and roof joists decked in plywood. Both roofs have a Sarna membrane applied on Sarnatherm insulation boards.
The doors and windows are double glazed aluminium or traditional timber frames and doors. Electric roller shutters to ground floor windows and entrance doors provide additional security.
The external works comprise a tarmac car park, hard and soft landscaping and ramped footpaths for level access.
The building is provided with a wind turbine, under floor heating supplied by underground heat source pumps and a rain harvester tank which collects rainwater for reuse in the toilets. A display monitor shows the amount of energy the building is using on heating and lighting.
Clerestory windows and high level windows in the main hall allow natural light to flood in and also supply ventilation. The high level windows have self cleaning glass fitted.
Electric roller shutters to ground floor windows and entrance doors provide additional security.
