The Ockendon Academy, Essex

Sports Hall

The school approached us after going through a full tender process for a new sports hall, and receiving quotes back that were more than twice their budget. The main requirement was to gain additional space; a 6 badminton court sports hall was a must.

We revised the specification of the building envelope and M&E fit out, so that the building was still absolutely fit for purpose while meeting their budget.

The project benefited from the support of Essex Cricket, which allowed the hall to be fitted with 6 cricket lanes and an upgraded spec of floor.

The popular and expanding school now has a high quality sports facility, which at one point in the process looked unachievable.

“Thank you Directline Structures for a superb sports hall. Your experience and expertise was amazing and your support throughout was unrivalled.”
