Case Studies – New Build

Barton Upon Humber SA Hall

Project Overview

IGL were appointed by the Salvation Army several years ago to survey and review the extent of the work necessary to convert a former Public House into a new Worship Hall and Community centre in Barton-upon-Humber.

Following extensive investigations is became clear that the 1960’s build reinforced concrete structure was not capable of economic redesign.

The Army tried over a number of years for a partnership approach to the site, with the option of a convenience store a good solution. Following extensive discussions with the planning department it became clear that a joint use (with retail use) was not going to be approved.

IGL were asked to redesign the scheme and several feasibility options were prepared. At this time a small housing Developer was approached to take over half the site and so a Develop & Construction Contract was initiated.

IGL obtained Planning Permission for the new SA Hall and 3 pairs of semi-detached timber framed houses. The developer constructed the hall under a JCT PCC 2011 Prime Cost Building Contract.

The building is a timber frame with underfloor heating powered by a 6kw Photovoltaic Array built into the southward facing roof slope to maximize it potential. Thus giving the hall a green energy rating using no gas and minimum energy consumption.

The hall was opened on the 2nd September 2017 and has grown in congregation year on year.
