Swindon Town Football in the Community

Client: Swindon Town Football in the Community Trust

Architect: gcp Architects

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 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.
