Community Projects

We pride ourselves in constructing community buildings that are fit for purpose, fully accessible to comply with DDA legislation, easy to maintain, and built to the highest standards.

Our schemes include refurbishments, extensions and remodelling to breathe new life into redundant spaces as well as constructing modern, environmentally friendly and purpose designed buildings.

We incorporate sustainable technologies wherever possible and consider the whole life cycle cost of a building, making them more cost efficient to run in the long term. An exemplar scheme for Mildway Community Partnership involved the refurbishment and upgrading of an existing community centre to meet Passivhaus standards of sustainability and recycling and to create a further 35% of usable work space.

On any project we undertake, we endeavour to use local labour, materials and suppliers wherever possible. On all projects we work collaboratively with the different stakeholders involved including local authorities, funding bodies and user groups to provide facilities that best serve community interests.

Buxton were honoured to have worked for Canterbury Cathedral on  'The Canterbury Journey' 

 

The new Visitor Centre was built adjacent to the Grade I listed Christ Church Gate part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

 

The new Visitor Centre has been sensitively designed to complement the Cathedral and will provide information, exhibitions, ticketing services and a shop with a free to enter Viewing Gallery, which will offer stunning views of the Cathedral, as well as a new Community Studio.

 

The essential work is possible thanks to a major grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Chapter of Canterbury, and funds raised by the Canterbury Cathedral Trust, from The Friends and many other private and charitable sources in the UK and USA.
