Foundation Park is a new-build development, giving a new purpose-built home to the STFC Community Foundation. The Community Foundation strives to improve sports participation, education, social inclusion and health & wellbeing within the local community, with over 30,000 participants each year.
Foundation Park has been credited for its contribution and has been shortlisted for the RICS Social Impact Awards 2020, a nationally recognised awards programme that highlights the impact our built environment has on people’s lives. We undertook the full detailed design for the mechanical and electrical engineering services.
The design includes a wide entrance foyer with café and seating, changing rooms with high quality mechanical ventilation and heat recovery, multiple offices and conference rooms and a large upper floor conference/exhibition room with a modern feature lighting design, adjoined to a dedicated kitchen and food preparation area. The completed facility was handed over in late 2019.
