ADG Architects completes new sports pavilion for Richmond School

04 January 2016

ADG Architects has completed a new sports pavilion for Richmond School and Sixth Form College.

The £650,000 sports pavilion includes six new changing facilities, a classroom and a meeting room, built on a site next to the sports pitches at the North Yorkshire comprehensive school.

John Bell, Partner at Darlington-based ADG Architects, led the project and was appointed following recommendations from a number of other schools.

Andrew Gardner, Business Manager, Richmond School, said: “Following our successful bids for funding for the Richmond School Sports Pavilion we required an experienced project manager to lead our school team to turn our plans into reality.

“Following conversations with other School Business Managers, ADG Architects kept being recommended as an option to contact for our project. Following a tender exercise, which included presentations, ADG Architects was selected.

“John Bell from ADG Architects was appointed our project manager and we have been delighted with both the project, leadership and his coordination. We were confident that we were working with best practice knowledge in the team and that we had the capacity to review progress with confidence. The project contract build was negotiated at a guaranteed fixed price which resulted in the project being delivered to budget.”

ADG Architects has worked with more than 320 schools throughout North Yorkshire and the North East of England in the past 20 years, on a variety of projects including classroom and toilet block refurbishments, new classrooms, libraries, sports pavilions and new schools.

Mr Bell said: “We have built strong relationships with many of these schools and continue to work closely with them. Our commitment to provide cost effective design solutions, on time and to budget, means that we receive many recommendations for new work, as was the case for the new sports pavilion at Richmond School.

“It was a pleasure to work with the team at Richmond School, and I am delighted that they are as pleased with the outcome as I am.”
