This scheme comprised the construction of a single storey extension to the existing church to form a new multi-use church hall. Construction involved glulam/steel structural elements, zinc roofing and high performance bespoke hardwood windows and doors. The scheme also included full fit-out to provide a turnkey solution involving commercial kitchen installation, bespoke internal joinery, AV equipment and loose furniture.
Access to the site was restricted as the church remained in full use. A sympathetic approach was required in relation to the numerous services and ongoing church activities taking place during the construction period.
The scheme was completed on time and to budget, and officially blessed by the Bishop of Portsmouth on 24 March 2011.
Thank you and all who have been involved at Drew in this project. It has been a pleasure working with you all and the Client has been most impressed by the high standards of workmanship achieved. I have no doubt that the building will stand for decades to come as a tribute to you all.Columba Cook, Employer's Agent
