Falmer Sports Pavilion, University of Brighton
Client Name: University of Brighton
Role: Employer's Agent and Cost Manager
The development of a new sports pavilion containing eight new changing facilities, plus additional changing facilities for officials, two seminar rooms which can be divided into four and associated external works which serve the sports fields.
The design incorporates the use of retaining walls to provide level access at both car park level and sports field level on the “upper ground floor”. This creates a usable venue whilst sports is played with functional changing facilities on the floor below.
A key challenge of the project was the implementation of site infrastructure works, which required the location of existing mains services as the drawing information was outdated. This required strict cost control and a number of calculated test holes to identify their locations.
