Isle of Wight based school; Christ the King College has recently undergone major development. A key phase has been to take delivery of a modular sports hall building from Spaciotempo to help with a raft of school activities.
The 700sqm building, predominantly installed for use as a sports hall. Has doubled up to provide sufficient space for assemblies. Furthermore, the School needed a temporary facility to provide a much needed space before the BSF programme. Spaciotempo were chosen as a result of a competitive tender and the preferred design of the roof trusses.
Christ the King College reaping the benefits of modular temporary sports hall
Students have benefitted from a larger multi-use games area. Therefore, ensuring that indoor PE and extra-curricular sports activities can accommodate more participants.
Specified for the building are to be set at a high standard, including specialist flooring and sports light fittings to ensure a high quality playing environment. Dividing nets means that the space can be divided up into smaller areas when required.
In addition, an inflated thermo roof not only assists with temperature control, but also aids teaching through its improved acoustic qualities, allowing teachers to be heard more effectively, in what is a very busy environment.
Christ the King College appointed WYG Management Services Ltd to manage and design. The project included modular classrooms and external areas in addition to the new sports hall. The project was completed in October 2010 and has been extremely well received by the School Community.
Dave Corbin, Regional Director of WYG stated “Spaciotempo were very professional in their approach during all phases of the project. The team requested some specific requirements in the Pre Construction phase which were acted upon by the Spaciotempo team. On site, the project was well managed and normal difficulties experienced in construction projects were overcome in a proactive and positive manner. The School will benefit greatly from the new facility during what will be a significant period of change”.
