NEW SPORTS HALL AND GYMNASIUM
The Sports Hall for King Henry VIII School, Coventry was designed with our Joint Venture Partner Richard S Baily.
The brief from the Clients was to provide a hall suitable for indoor hockey, badminton and cricket with a climbing wall facility. In addition a gymnasium with facilities for dance was to be included together with appropriate changing,showering and toilet accommodation.
The design continues the main sports hall roof over the changing area and locates the gymnasium on the mezzanine created above.
The school is in a Conservation Area and the materials used in the building are brickwork to match the existing buildings with oak boarding above door height and a corrugated metal roof.
We have also worked at King Henry VIII School on a new Art Department, CDT Department, and Sixth Form Centre and have carried out an Access Audit.
We increased our expertise in design for sport when John Viner worked for a year with Sport England monitoring the submissions for Sports Hall grants under the New Opportunities Fund £60m programme for the West Midlands which was delivered through school projects.
We have worked on a number of Sports Hall projects for Higher and Further Education, Schools, and Sports Clubs, including Coventry University, Warwickshire College, King Edward Schools Foundation Birmingham, Coventry Rugby Club, Nuneaton Rugby Club and Warwick Racing Football Club.
We have also worked on Pavilion and Changing Room projects for Coventry University, Blue Coat C of E School Coventry, The John White Centre Coventry, The Memorial Park Coventry and Harbury Village Hall.
