Saunders are appointed to design a new sports building and 3G football pitch on an existing higher educational college site. The planning application includes a residential proposal for part of the site, which will facilitate the development of the new sports facilities for the college. The existing facilities are dilapidated and these are to be replaced with a new sports building, containing a sports hall, reception, gym and changing facilities. The buildings connect with the existing college campus and are accessed via landscaped areas of public realm which negotiate the significant level differences across the site. The proposals meet the requirements of the college curriculum and it is proposed that they will also serve the
wider community as an out of hours sports facility.
We have worked closely with the college, cost consultants, planning consultants and sports consultants to develop an acceptable scheme which is affordable and meets the requirements of Sport England.
