Akeley Wood Lower School

A second multi-purpose sports hall

Akeley Wood Lower School

Having completed the new sports facility at Akeley Wood Senior School to the complete satisfaction of the client, Dove Construction successfully negotiated the contract for a similar project at the Lower School. Set within the grounds of The Tile House Mansion, the building's tension membrane structure contains a hall which will be used as a standard indoor sports area. Due to tight site constraints, a changing pavilion and plant room were designed and built in-situ instead of utilising pre-fabricated units.

During the construction phase, special care had to be taken with trees in the ground of the school and a fire access road had to be formed through the wooded area. A new exterior tennis court and landscaping completed the facility which was ready for use at the beginning of the Summer Term 2010.
