Conversion of this derelict Grade II listed chapel into the OFSTED accredited “outstanding” nursery it is now combined great innovation and considerable skills culminating in a Sussex Heritage Trust Award for construction.
Surrounded by fenced, safe–play areas for its pre–school occupants this stunning facility offers the very best pre–school care in the unlikeliest of buildings
Carefully considered construction design and activity managed to significantly change the internals of the building not apparent on first appearance when standing outside. However inside a mezzanine floor doubled the useable space with spacious glazed wall classrooms creating natural light in every room. Clever heating design and installation ensures what was a traditionally cold church is not only warm and comfortable but ensures heating the building is economical.
Key successes of the project included:
- Sussex Heritage Trust award for conservation
- Sympathetic construction working with English Heritage
- Storey height glazed walls to classrooms
- Fenced safe play areas
