SIPs installation just in time for Christmas at Hampton Hill CC

Following months of hard work in the ground, Hampton Hill Cricket Club’s new pavilion construction is taking a considerable step next week. Whilst work has continued on site, the SIPs (Structurally Insulated Panels) that will form the perimeter of the new clubhouse have been fabricated to fit in the Hemsec factory in St. Helens (pictured left). The incredible thermal performance of SIPs will mean that the new clubhouse, once built, will be one of the most environmentally friendly sports buildings in the country. Specialist SIPs contractor Creative Space will arrive on site next week to assemble the SIPs with a roof programmed to be completed just before the Christmas break. Macdonald Design, acting in an architectural and project management capacity  alongside Creative Space and JW Cannon (main contractor), will oversee the works. The new pavilion is on target to be completed in time for the 2013 season.

On October 8th 2010 the club was the subject of an arson attack that left the clubhouse in ruins and treasured club possessions lost forever. Hampton Hill Cricket Club assembled a project team charged with rebuilding the pavilion and Macdonald Design were appointed as architects at the end of 2010. We have worked alongside the club and the various external influences including the Royal Parks and London Borough of Richmond’s Planning Authority to design a building that would replace the existing that was so sadly burnt down.

The new pavilion will reinstate Hampton Hill Cricket Club into their rightful place as a vital sporting and social resource in the local community.
