The Project
The provision of a new multi-purpose pavilion with independent changing facilities for the playing fields on a site north east of Hook. Also, the provision of another new building that will be joined to the pavilion and required to accommodate workshops, material store and other facilities required by the Hook Shed. The combined buildings will have some shared facilities such as toilets and as an initial guide the floor area of the pavilion part is proposed to be approx. 450 m2 and the floor area of the Hook Shed part is proposed to be approx. 130 m2.
The Council requires a contemporary design for the pavilion and associated facilities which satisfies the planning and technical guidelines set out by the RFA and Sports Council England.

When developing the final layouts and the detailed designs the Architect will be required to work closely with both the Sports Working Group of the Parish Council in regard to the sports and recreational facilities associated with the pavilion and the Trustees of the Hook Shed in regard to their facilities which will provide for workshops and social activities.
Following planning approval the Architect will be required to prepare the necessary contract documents, including all drawings, specification and supporting documents to enable the Parish Council to invite tenders for the construction of the whole of these combined facilities using an appropriate Form of Contract.
