Project Description

Church redevelopment

We acted as architects on a design and build contract to redevelop Hale Methodist Church to provide new apartments for shared ownership and a community facility. The project was to provide six new apartments for shared ownership and a new community facility for Hale Methodists.

Key Features

  • Establishing a clear Client Brief. This was particularly important as the various user groups had specific needs in this development which included pre-schools, adult learning, worship and lunchtime clubs.
  • Designing a multi-function space compliant with the requirements for all funding stakeholders, for example, HCA, and also to meet the needs of the user group.
  • Identifying risks to the project, then innovating and mitigating risks. For example: reuse of the stained glass windows and retention of part of the facade.
  • Establishing a pragmatic, sustainable, and solutions focused development which is easy for the tenants to live in and responds to the needs of users of the community rooms to address fuel poverty.
  • Less carbon emissions and less waste.
  • Supporting the local authority in providing excellent services.
  • Low maintenance and low life cycle costs.
