Pound Close Community Centre

Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire

CLIENT: Broxbourne Borough Council
ARCHITECT: Broxbourne Borough Council
QUANTITY SURVEYOR: Broxbourne Borough Council
VALUE: £590,000
CONTRACT PERIOD: 30 weeks

This project, which was completed in April 2016 by our Special Works Division, involved the construction of a new Community Centre in Hoddesdon.

The new single storey centre was built using the traditional method of concrete slab flooring and timber roof trusses and was constructed on part of an existing playing field. Completed over 30 weeks the building now features two large halls, a toilet block, office space and a kitchen.

The new purpose built facility replaces Hoddesdon’s existing Community Centre which is scheduled for demolition in order to make way for new build housing. Various community groups such as Scout’s and day nurseries will benefit from use of the centre together with the Council making it available for private hire.

Externally, a new car park was formed and a grasscrete access road to the building constructed. Initiatives such as limiting delivery times and issuing regular update newsletters ensured minimum disruption to neighbouring properties. These measures combined with 94% of all site waste being diverted from landfill helped to contribute to the project receiving an above industry average Considerate Constructors score of 37.
