We built a robust Planning case based on the special circumstances particular to the Gymnastics Club and its status as a Centre of Excellence.
We also highlighted to the Local Authority the benefits that the Club and its development would bring to the whole of the local community, particularly those with physical and learning disabilities.
The design was developed in conjunction with the Gymnastics Club to make sure it catered for the way they train and need to use the facility, whilst meeting the height constraints set by the local planning authority.
It was also key for the new extension to improve the appearance of the existing club and give the building a more unified appearance. This was achieved by designing a feature roof that creates synergy with the existing building through careful use of sympathetic materials.
