To replace an existing Community Centre building with 12 modular bays to create 200m sq. single storey construction providing three multi-purpose rooms with a folding partition to create a fourth room when required, along with a bar, social meeting area, kitchen, and toilets.
The building, which was to have many uses such as Day Nursery, Youth Club and Library, needed to be designed to fulfil many purposes, meaning space needed to be flexible with rooms of different sizes to accommodate the different activities
Keith Hynes, Project & Technical Manager, provided a few ideas and even took the Trustees to some developments which reflected what the community centre needed in terms of the use of space and sliding partition options. The final decision was to create 3 rooms with the partitioning option creating a fourth room when necessary. Toilet facilities were of course a must along with a bar and professional kitchen for the regular functions held at the premises.
Working with Arnold Laver allowed the team at Springfield to cater to the projects’ bespoke requirements. With the timbers purchased from Arnold Laver used in the construction of the walls, ceilings & panels, whilst also having the flexibility to order material in specific sizes so they achieve the desired thicknesses needed in the overall project plan.
Lyndsey Duggan, Managing Director of Springfield Mobile Limited, quoted “Springfield Mobile Limited have been sourcing timber products from Arnold Laver for a number of years. We find them reliable, well stocked and offer us a good service at keen prices.
We particularly appreciate the ability to order timber in bespoke sizes, this speeds up our construction process and reduces waste which clearly both impact positively on cost reduction and our efficiency”
