Sports buildings and facilities are a really important part of what a school offers its students. This fantastic project, gleaming in the sun, is the new sports building at Kingham Hill School near Chipping Norton. Thinking Buildings secured this project after winning a limited design competition to replace outdated accommodation with a brief to deliver top class sports facilities. Our design includes a new 4 court hall, climbing wall, squash court, changing rooms, PE classroom and a social area for before and after matches.
The end result looks great and the new building consolidates the sporting activities that were previously spread across the school campus. It was constructed by Beard with consultancy by Thinking Buildings, SOLID Structures & Infrastructure and Foreman Roberts. Photography by Charlie Birchmore
We are currently working on a new private sector sports project for a local independent school, to extend and transform a tired existing sports building. This scheme will provide a large gym, Fives court, changing rooms and studio, together with creating a new entrance, sports reception and focal point for the school’s sporting activities. More to follow as the design progresses.
