The Bradbury Centre initially known as the Smiles Resource Centre was commissioned by The Friends of the Elderly to provide a day centre for people with Alzheimerâ€™s together with accommodation for the Woking Home Support Service and Advocacy in Action Group.
The building was constructed on land adjacent to the Bernard Sunley Home and within the garden of the vacant Smiles Home, which was demolished prior to construction works of the new building commencing.
The building provides accommodation on two floors. The Ground Floor accommodation primarily for the Alzheimerâ€™s Day Centre is inwardly looking from the day rooms into an attractively planted courtyard area.
Accommodation at 1st Floor level, is contained within the roof space, located over the Ground Floor footprint. Accommodation comprises offices to accommodate the Woking Home Support Service and Advocacy in Action Group, a meeting room and shared ancillary staff accommodation for the whole of the building.
A separate accommodation wing provides a bed-sit type accommodation for staff of the building and the adjacent residential Bernard Sunley Home.
The building structure is of load bearing masonry construction. It has been built of selected facing brick with feature detailing. The building has a plain tile roof with bonnet hip tiles and a feature curved roof over its entrance. Dormers are tile hung with lead flashing details. Eaves have been designed with exposed rafter ends. Windows and doors are purpose built in timber which are double glazed and finished in a paint finish.
