Burgess Park Community Centre

New Build Development

Back to Projects

The Burgess Park Community Sports Centre provides changing facilities for the artificial surface and for turf playing fields, as well as a reception, kitchen, bar, community room and stores. Demonstrating advanced low and renewable energy technologies, the approach was to minimise energy consumption and, then, to use the potential of the sun and the earth to minimise reliance on fossil fuels. The energy strategy incorporates high insulation, solar protection, a building integrated photovoltaic array, ground-linked heat pump for water and space heating, and rainwater recycling.
