CYPRESS CHILDREN'S CENTRE

Croydon, Greater London

Huntley Cartwright acted as project manager and quantity surveyor for the new Children's Centre and Nursery.  Building on a restricted, busy, occupied site involved careful coordination with site users and the diversion and extension of all utility services.

 

The award winning design utilised a timber-framed extension.  Substantial re-planning was required to accommodate multi-agency and community use and to provide a new covered play and learning space.  The completed project is used by many different sections of the local community.

LANCING COLLEGE ARTS CENTRE

Lancing, West Sussex

The project brief for a new arts facility within the grounds of Grade I listed buildings provided an architectural challenge, as well as addressing the location of the building within the listed surroundings.

 

Rather than mimic the adjacent college an imposing gothic chapel, the arts building is a complete contrast; a strikingly modern arrangement of cantilevered cubes set high into the hillside.  The new building provides arts accommodation including a photography area, general workspaces, lecture theatre and glazed atrium/display area.

 

Our quantity surveying service included extensive value engineering focussing on heating installations.  With our advice the full project was achieved within budget.  The feature elevations and wide spanning space have created a stunning update in a historic setting.
