Description
Chesterfield Borough Council is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced lead contractor to undertake the refurbishment and extension of Eastwood Park Village Hall.

Eastwood Park Village Hall is a Grade B1 listed building located in the grounds of Eastwood Park, Hasland. The building is owned by Chesterfield Borough Council .

Eastwood Park Village Hall (the former Hasland House),is located within Eastwood Park, which is an integral part of the history of Hasland forming an important open space within a dense housing area developed during the 20th century. The park has a rich social history, being in constant use for nearly 100 years for sports, community events and informal enjoyment. In addition the character and several important heritage features remain. The village hall operates as a centre for social inclusion and it is used by a wide range of local youth, community, and voluntary organisations.

The Village Hall is an interesting example of early 20th century design, by Roland W. Paul of Clifton, Bristol. Commissioned and paid for by Bernard C. Lucas, whose family lived at Hasland Hall, it remains a landmark feature of the Park with the front entrance portico, external brick piers and large arched window openings giving the building considerable character. Internally, the size and shape of the main hall suits a wide range of uses. Dance and fitness activities benefit from the parquet floor and the small stage suits lectures, discos and small group activities. The Village Hall is locally significant remaining a popular venue for community activities nearly 100 years after opening.

The current proposals are to refurbish and extend the building, closing in the courtyard to the north of the building to accommodate a new toilet block with some internal work also being carried out to reshape the interior spaces. Some new mechanical & electrical installations will be installed throughout the existing and new buildings, served by the existing plant and switch rooms.

The form of contract will be JCT Intermediate Building Contract (IC) (2006) as amended by the Council
