A community sports pavilion

Hesketh Bank Sports Pavilion

Community sports pavilion

Harrison Stringfellow were commissioned by the local parish council to provide permanent changing facilities to replace a temporary container. Funded by a Sport England grant, the facilities have enabled the youth team of the amateur football club to qualify for hosting matches in the upper league as well as providing communal facilities for other organisations such as the allotment society.

The pavilion is positioned and designed to be low impact on local residents, services and existing parking provision.



Constructed on a tight budget – £900/m2, the planning of the building is efficient to keep the overall footprint, and subsequent build cost to a minimum whilst still providing adequate facilities for changing, officials and accessible toilet facilities.

HSA negotiated the donation of line end bricks from a local builders merchants, and used the terracotta colour for both the roof and internal floor finishes to create an homogenous, textured form.  It is a modest building but with attention to detail and we enjoyed the collaborative discussions with the client team to extract best value for money from the project.
