The redevelopment of Reigate Priory C.C.’s pavilion begins

Construction works for the revelopment of the historic pavilion at Reigate Priory Cricket Club is now underway. Macdonald Design, following their work as architects on the design, will continue on the project in a project management capacity overseeing the works until final handover which is expected to be in late March in preparation for the 2014 season.

Macdonald Design were appointed by Reigate Priory C.C. to work on a redesign of their existing pavilion. The clubhouse was originally constructed in the 1920s as a timber building. Consequently, the clubhouse is a building of some significance in the local area and any redesign would need to retain the character and look of the original pavilion whilst adopting some more contemporary modifications.

Following detailed consultation with the club and then the local conservation officer a new design has been adopted and is illustrated in the opening picture. This maintains the look and feel of the existing building as much as possible whilst introducing more changing space, a new balcony and some sliding windows to the player/spectator viewing area. The project was submitted to Planning in June 2012 and approved later that year.

A contractor was appointed following a detailed tender with the project due to start at the end of the 2013 season in preparation for the 2014 season. The club embarked on an extensive fundraising campaign which has successfully raised the finance to begin the project. Our photo diary chronicles the construction process.

Reigate Priory C.C. have just enjoyed another season in the Premier League of the Ryman Surrey Championship and will be hoping that their redeveloped pavilion promotes them to further success for years to come.
