South Downs Heritage Centre
We have recently completed this new Oak Framed Heritage Centre and Retail Barn in Hassocks, East Sussex - a huge success!
This wonderful building is a testament to Border Oak's experience and knowledge, the engineering/structural capabilities of oak framing, and the vision and ambition of our client.
The contemporary oak framed structure was designed to complement an existing successful business, and now provides space for a heritage museum together with a artisan food & produce hall, coffee shop and restaurant. There are also areas provided for craft workshops and demonstration theatres.
Border Oak - working in collaboration with a Main Contractor - were responsible for the design, manufacture and erection of the vast oak frame (one of the largest we have completed using some of the biggest sections of oak ever procured).
Border Oak also undertook the contemporary roof structure (including huge flat roof spans) and SIPs walls, enabling Border Oak to offer the client a complete construction package (at a fixed price) for the main structure of the buildings.
We were also able to phase delivery to meet the client's commercial requirements and to facilitate additional trading as soon as possible with minimal disruption.
A highly experienced Border Oak Project Manager oversaw our works - liaising with the Main Contractor and client to ensure the programme was delivered on time and expectations were exceeded.
The Contract Value £1M +
