CBG Consultants were appointed to complete the modelling and full M&E design works to a new build community centre comprising of a multi-use hall, meeting rooms, office, community shop and changing rooms.
The aim was to provide a local facility for the community, social and sports facilities within this well used public park in Aston Clinton. The existing building no longer satisfied current needs, refurbishing and extending was initially considered however, it was clear at an early stage that a new build solution was the only viable option to meet the client’s aspirations.
Other criteria in the client’s brief was the need to minimise running costs, to be sustainable and to be a attractive addition to the village.
M&E services included arranging Incoming Utility supplies (Electricity and Gas), Power , Lighting (Internal and External), Data, Access control, Fire Alarm, CCTV, LTHW heating system (utilising Underfloor heating, Radiant Panels and a small number of radiators), Electric radiant panel heating in changing rooms, Potable boosted Cold Water system, Domestic hot water service, Above ground drainage, MVHR ventilation (changing rooms and toilets) and Passive ventilation (in the Multi-use Hall). Solar PV panels on the roof provide electricity for the building. Provision was allowed with the design for a catering extract system to be added at a future date.
