Ashford Baptist Church

Ashford, London

CLIENT: Ashford Baptist Church
ARCHITECT: Carless & Adams Partnership
QUANTITY SURVEYOR: Carless & Adams Partnership
VALUE: £780,000
CONTRACT PERIOD: 42 Weeks

Works on this project initially began with the demolition of a disused warehouse building on site. The Ashford Baptist Church had purchased the building with the intention of refurbishing it to form a new centre for their church, however after completing initial works it became clear this was not cost effective and instead employed Borras to construct a new purpose-build facility.

Demolition works were carried out with the utmost care due to the close proximity of nearby properties and included the part demolition of a wall shared between the existing warehouse and a neighbouring building.

Once demolition and site clearance work was complete the new steel framed structure with mezzanine floor was erected. The ground floor of the building features underfloor heating and provides a multi purpose room, office, toilets, kitchen and a large Worship Hall. A 4 foot deep Baptistery pool is sunken into the floor of the Worship Hall that can be covered when not in use (pictured above).

The mezzanine floor features 4 group rooms, additional toilets and a balcony which over looks the Worship Hall. Externally, solar panels were fitted to the roof and new access roads were formed along with new parking at the front and rear of the building.
