woodhouse park community active lifestyle centre

Woodhouse park is a combined all age, lifestyle community and sports centre in Wythenshaw, Manchester and replaced two old and dilapidated prefabricated structures. The project was particularily challenging due to the range and age of user groups, security and operational requirements. There were several key stakeholders and funders plus many community groups that required access and use.

Partly sponsored by Sport England the building contains a four court sports hall, changing accommodation, youth centre, office and conferencing facilites plus a multi-use social space. Externally there are a further five multi use, all weather surface games areas.

There was an intensive period of stakeholder meetings in order to agree a detailed brief and cost plan with several planning meetings to agree a final design. The completed design incorporates a large and welcoming double height entrance area and main staircase with a circular drum on the corner of the site which contains the main reception and offices.

The project was completed with Galliford Try and EWA under a Design and Build contract to the satisfaction of the client.
