Broughton Community Pavilion

Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

CLIENT: Milton Keynes Council
ARCHITECT: Vincent & Gorbing
QUANTITY SURVEYOR: Turner & Townsend
VALUE: £2,015,000
CONTRACT PERIOD: 29 Weeks

Borras’ General Contracts team have completed the design and build of a new community centre in Broughton for Milton Keynes Council.

The works included the removal of the existing top soil from the playing field to accommodate the sub-structure, concrete plank floors and a timber frame structure.

The cross laminated timber structure (CLT) allowed for the design process to be accelerated with internal fixtures and fittings, including windows and doors, being produced as made to measure.

During the school holidays, Borras Construction in conjunction with Milton Keynes Council held an Open Day for local residents which included a family world picnic, outdoor games and activities on the playing field opposite the site. The Open Day was attended by the Mayor of Milton Keynes Councillor Catriona Morris who had the honour of burying a time capsule filled with drawings by local children and photos from residents.

The project received an ‘Excellent’ rating from BREEAM, the standard for best practice in sustainable design and environmental performance.
