New community sports hall with accommodation for teaching, fitness studio and changing rooms, as well as the main hall suitable for four badminton courts for Grantham Church High School. The entrance foyer has a strong visual identity to welcome and direct visitors
The north and east of the building is encased in earth bunding to improve insulation and thermal mass as well as minimising the visual bulk of the main hall from the rear. To the south and west, the visual bulk of the hall is broken by the lower volumes of the entrance and teaching/secondary spaces. The building has a sedum green roof and is oriented to take full advantage of solar gain and natural lighting and ventilation and will meet BREEAM excellent rating.
