This prestigious new build community centre with construction value circa. £2M, was constructed under a Design and Build framework, for which JPP were the civil and structural designer. The overall building was approximately 35m long and 15m deep, with a large main hall created from portal frames supporting aesthetic cut timber features. Coordination with the external architect worked well through the use of REVIT drawings controlled by regular collaborative meetings. One of the key factors to the project success was the liaison between JPP and the contractor’s key suppliers who were brought on board early for input in to a safe and cost-efficient solution.
