Working with Ball Hall Projects for the second time we were able to produce another high-quality sports facility for staff and students at Kingshott School. The project comprised of the design and build of a single storey sports hall to be used for numerous sports activities and as a theatre.
The hall has been kitted out with specialist sports equipment including electronic score board, electronic fully retractable seating rig (435 seats), a 4m electronic drop down projector screen and a trampoline spotting rig. A mezzanine floor was built to house an A.V control room for when the sports hall was used as a theatre.
The school were delighted with the project from start to finish and the children extremely excited to start using their new facilities.
Engaging with the school
Throughout the project we maintained regular contact with the school which allowed the build to run smoothly with little or no disruption to their day to day learning. We attended a school assembly to provide an overview of the construction Industry, discuss the dangers of a live site and explain to the children exactly what we were building for them.
We also arranged guided tours for the students over a 2 week period and all year groups were included from Nursery to Year 8. The tour was conducted as a question and answer session and the children were keen to ask the site manager many varying questions. These included how much steel, concrete, electrical cabling and bricks were used as well as how much he earnt and what he was having for lunch.
A huge well done goes to the project team for completing yet another high quality sports hall!
