Harrogate Town Football Club Redevelopment

Harrogate Town Football Club

Harrogate

Founded in 1914, Harrogate Town Football Club is a semi-professional football club based in the town of Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

The club has aspirations to enter the professional football leagues. The club needs to expand their current facilities and capacity from 4,000 to over 5,000 to meet the ground criteria of higher leagues. Bowman Riley Architects has designed proposals to upgrade its player and spectator facilities in four phases to aid the club’s continued success and growth.

The first phase planned for 2018 comprises a new two storey club house to provide modern player changing facilities at pitch level in a striking new building to meet the future requirements of the English Football League. The first floor will provide a flexible hospitality dining space with an external elevated terrace seating for 128 spectators overlooking the pitch. The location of the new club house was carefully selected to allow its construction while maintaining use of the existing facilities.

The second phase will begin in 2019 to provide a new face for the club to strengthen its existing presence. The accommodation will replace the existing entrance structure to include improved turnstile access, ground floor ticket area and staff offices.

In 2020, following demolition of the former corporate hospitality area, a new terrace will be provided to increase seating capacity under cover of a projected roof.

The final phase in 2021 – 2023 will ensure that the stadium is eligible for entry into the English Football league. This phase will see the construction of a new terrace to bring capacity of the stadium to 5000.

Festival Park leisure complex – Stoke on Trent

Valad Property Group

Stoke on Trent, West Midlands

Bowman Riley is designing a £2.5m refurbishment of an existing Odeon cinema and leisure complex in Festival Park, an out of town retail park in Stoke on Trent.

Originally built in 1998, the existing cinema complex is dated and in need of investment and refurbishment to enable it to respond to changes in customer demand and to compete with a new city centre cinema.  In addition, much of the first floor is currently empty following the closure of the Quasar laser game.

A planning application has been recently submitted to transform the buildings exterior, which will be over-clad to give it a more contemporary appearance.

To occupy the vacant space within the building, the plan is to open three restaurants.  The proposal will ensure the Odeon cinema can operate viably in todays evolving leisure market.

Silverlink Shopping Park – Newcastle

Silverlink Shopping Park – Newcastle

Nortrust Nominees and ESH Build

Wallsend, Newcastle

Bowman Riley developed two new restaurant units at the Silverlink Shopping Park, from planning to construction.  The project was initially for Nortrust Nominees and subsequently for the contractor ESH Build.

Silverlink Shopping Park is a major retail park in Newcastle with over 20 retailers and leisure offerings of an Odeon cinema and restaurant units such as Pizza Hut, McDonalds and Frankie & Benny’s.

Abergavenny Library – South Wales

Abergavenny Library – South Wales

Monmouthshire County Council

Abergavenny, South Wales

Bowman Riley Architects designed a new library in Abergavenny to bring together the library functions and other council services, tourist information and coffee shop to create a community hub.

The existing library housed in the 1906 Carnegie building no longer meets the needs of the community, as it is unable to accommodate the stock levels and activities required.

The building forms part of a mixed use development in the centre of the town on the existing cattle market site alongside a new Wm Morrison Supermarket. Bowman Riley Architects was commissioned to design both the library and supermarket with a focus on enhancing the urban grain of the town and improving connectivity to other parts of Abergavenny.

To support the development of the brief and design, we visited new comparable libraries to incorporate best practice and consulted with various user groups including library and council staff and representatives from community groups.

The new 1000m² building will provide multi-use, open plan and adaptable spaces alongside archive and research functions. Features include enhanced IT provision to enable new technology and electronic learning tools and improvements the library’s operations with self-service book lending and an interactive video wall.

The building is designed to achieve BREEAM Excellent and an energy performance A rating with at least 15% of the energy requirements provided by renewable or low/zero carbon solutions using Photovoltaics, air source heat pumps and natural ventilation.

Cookridge Hall Golf Club – Leeds

Cookridge Hall Golf Club – Leeds

Stirling Investments Ltd

Cookridge, Leeds, West Yorkshire

Bowman Riley Architects was instructed by Stirling Investments Ltd to design a masterplan for their existing green belt site at Cookridge Hall Golf Club, North Leeds.

The land is set in the grounds of a Grade II listed 18th century mansion house under separate ownership and in use as a health and fitness club.

Concerned about the long term viability of the golf club, Stirling Investments commissioned research to consider the future of golf at the club. The outcome of the research was that the club needed to attract higher volume users and encourage more young people to use the facilities.

Our role was to retain and rationalise the 18 hole course into a 9 hole course aimed at reaching a wider customer base. We also introduced a 9 hole footgolf course aimed at children and young people to stimulate an interest in the sport from a younger age as a crossover sport from football to golf. The remainder of the site was promoted to Leeds City Council for a residential development of up to 300 new houses, which would make a significant contribution towards meeting local housing land supply.

Due to the nature of the green belt site in the context of a listed building setting, we worked alongside a landscape architect to consider long distance views and topography. A landscape visual impact assessment was undertaken and this informed the masterplan for the site.

We also took into consideration historic features of the site that had been lost and incorporate them into the masterplan.  Visit their website here.

Kenwood Ladies Pond – Hampstead Heath, London

Kenwood Ladies Pond – Hampstead Heath, London

Catfoss

Hampstead Heath, North West London

Bowman Riley Architects designed a new modular changing facility at Kenwood Ladies’ Pond.  This open air swimming pond and secluded meadow is on Hampstead Heath in North London and run by the City of London.

Opened to the public in 1926, Kenwood Ladies’ Pond is used throughout the year and the new facility was needed to open in time for the particularly popular summer months. The existing building was located on dam and had to be demolished in order to undertake repair work to the dam. It was also run down and in need of replacement. The project was originally conceived to be traditional build; however, the facility could not be delivered in time.

Modular manufacturer Catfoss was brought in to provide a modular solution and Bowman Riley Architects was commissioned to redesign the original concept in a modular format whilst maintaining the original specification required by the client. The facility comprises two buildings; the first accommodating internal and external changing rooms and showers and the second, a lifeguard observation room, an office and disabled facilities.

An innovative solution was designed to create a facility that would be fully accessible. A level threshold for the building was needed for accessible entrances and exits. A new concrete deck was laid by BAM Nuttall and concrete pockets were created to locate each module ensuring level thresholds.

The building was manufactured off site in large aircraft hangers in Driffield, North Yorkshire and erected on site in April 2016 in time for the busy summer season.

Skipton, North Yorkshire

Skipton Golf Club, founded in 1893, is nestled amongst the beautiful Yorkshire Dales on the edge of the historic town of Skipton.

Bowman Riley Interiors was approached by Skipton Golf Club to redesign the existing bar and restaurant areas in the Club House building.

The Club needs to be able to offer a truly flexible space for events and general day-to-day use. We employed 3D modelling software to explore various space planning options using flexible partitions to split the existing spaces for various configurations and layouts.

Our design concept involved the introduction of a fresh, contemporary palette of colours and materials to improve and update the aesthetics.

The dining and bar areas would also be enhanced by a full furniture fit-out, improved lighting and floor finishes.

Upper Wharfedale Cricket Club Clubhouse Pavilion – North Yorkshire

Upper Wharfedale Cricket Club

Grassington, North Yorkshire

Bowman Riley Architects was appointed to design a new two storey Clubhouse Pavilion in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park for the Upper Wharfedale Cricket Club.

Located in an enviable setting to the North of Grassington, the project was to replace an existing clubhouse building that was in poor condition and no longer fit for purpose. A new Clubhouse Pavilion will enable the Club to provide a safe place for all to play and to hold social events throughout the year providing a source of revenue to help secure the future viability of the club.

Bowman Riley developed several options and styles, which were presented to the club using 3D concept modelling and photo-montage imagery. The selected design was developed into a full planning application taking a traditional approach in appearance and style to sit harmoniously into its beautiful surroundings.

The Clubhouse was designed to look like a traditional Yorkshire barn using Yorkshire stone and slate materials featuring a glazed façade facing the cricket oval to take advantage of the spectacular views.

The planning process consisted of close collaboration with the Yorkshire Dales National Park planning department involving design development meetings and additional 3D concept modelling to perfect the mass and appearance of the proposed pavilion.

The scheme achieved planning approval in early March 2016.

Upper Wharfedale Cricket Club is a community built club based in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, they are now looking at the delivery of the project through fund raising activities.

Queens Hall Renovation – West Yorkshire

Burley Parish Council

Burley in Wharfedale, West Yorkshire

Won through competition, Bowman Riley Interiors was commissioned to create a visionary concept for the full renovation of the Queen’s Hall, a grand Victorian building situated in the picturesque village of Burley-in-Wharfedale near Ilkley.

Built in 1868 by a local mill owner, the building has had several uses over the years from a cinema to a lecture hall. Most recently the Queen’s Hall as owned and operated by Bradford Metropolitan District Council as a theatre, meeting and function rooms. The ownership and management of the Hall was transferred to Burley Parish Council following local government cutbacks. The building needs a programme of refurbishment from roof repairs to window replacement. Internally the spaces are inefficient and decoration is dated.

Burley Parish Council wish to develop the building into a vibrant community hub with several different sized multi-purpose spaces for regular and occasional hire, introduce catering facilities and bar, provide spaces for recreational sport and music, secure a number of anchor tenants such as police surgery, youth club and locate a public library within the building.

Our design concept to enhances and extends the hall to create a modern flexible building. We explored how each space could be used for various functions to maximise the efficiency of the building whilst meeting the needs of the various user groups with differing requirements. We produced a 3D model and animation of the design concept for public viewing for the local community to review the designs to gauge feedback to enable the project to progress.

Working with the Shelby Group, we provided detailed budget costings on the design concept to enable the Parish Council to understand to the various elements from a shopping list of elements that were identified.
