The Architectural Team are working with Crofton Community Association in Stubbington, Hampshire to revamp their historic community centre building.
The Crofton Community Centre is one of the few remaining buildings on the site of the former Stubbington House School. The house was originally built in the early 1700s and the building on which the community centre is now in was added around 1870. The school moved away in the 1960s when the site was taken over Fareham District Council. Much of the original buildings were demolished or damaged and now the community centre building consists of a mixture of old buildings with various newer additions.
The community centre has plenty of visitors coming and going but they don’t have a reception area fit for purpose. It’s short of space, drafty and often congested with all the activities taking place.
Gary Wensley, Head of Architectural Services at Daniells Harrison Chartered Surveyors, is working with Crofton Community Association to completely revamp the reception area of the building, giving a new frontage to the building and reconfiguring the way people move in and out of the area so it all flows smoothly.
Gary has already carried out a feasibility study and conception design including a 3D artist impression of the refurbished reception and entrance. The next stage to be carried out by the Architectural team is to create a detailed design and submit a planning application on behalf of the Association.
The Building Surveying team at Daniells Harrison will then oversee the subsequent build and completion of the community centre.
