Project Description

4 Court Sports Hall, Burton Upon Trent (PDF)

deFerrers Specialist Technology College had, for many years, lacked a true sport Hall facility at their Trent Campus in Burton-Upon-Trent.

In conjunction with Staffordshire County Council and Buchans Special Projects, etc Architects produced a successful design for a 4 court sized Sports Hall including changing rooms, fitness suite, classrooms and toilets using a modern method of construction in the form of pre-cast insulated concrete wall panels.

This modern method of construction reduced the time taken on site significantly to minimise any disruption to the day-to-day school environment. The design fully complies with Sport England design Guides and was awarded a ‘Commended Award in the Burton-Upon-Trent Civic Society Design Awards 2009’.
