The two-storey community centre has been constructed in Norfolk as part of a larger scheme to bring a new Tesco superstore to the local area. The scheme included the demolition of a bungalow and had seen a new fire station built in the town.
The new community centre features underfloor heating, air conditioning, two fully equipped kitchens and six halls. The largest hall will be fitted with a specialist multi-purpose timber floor.
The car park finish is asphalt with an overspill car park constructed from grasscrete blocks. Block paving surrounds the building with associated landscaping and a large grassed area.
The site of the old community centre is being converted to form the car park for the new Tesco store.
An air source heat pump has been installed to supply heating to the new centre.
To help with the town’s entry in the Anglia in Bloom competition, large hording erected alongside the front of the old community centre was painted by the team to incorporate the design created by the Sheringham in Bloom committee. Red, white and blue planting was also put in place along the same stretch to boost the town’s efforts.
A viewing panel was installed to allow neighbours to follow the site’s progress.
‘It is a pleasure to acknowledge the excellent work carried out by… site staff keeping neighbours informed of progress through regular newsletters and accommodating their requirements such as the provision of a viewing panel.’
