Project: Redevelopment of Sandy Balls Holiday Centre, Godshill, Hampshire

Client: Sandy Balls Estates Ltd

Architect: HPW Partnership Ltd

Contractor: Cowlin Construction

Contract Value: £3.3m

This £3.3m fast-track project involved the reconstruction and refurbishment of the holiday centre’s facilities buildings together with new roads and drainage, and a new central pedestrianised area creating a traffic-free environment. The construction work was carried out in three phases, requiring much pre-planning, as it took place in a ‘live’ environment whilst the holiday business still continued in operation. Health and safety considerations were therefore paramount. Situated in the New Forest National Park, the project was subject to highly sensitive environmental issues, including freedom from noise and light pollution, tree preservation, and sustainable drainage. The emphasis for structural design focused on sustainable timber as a building material and the whole project had environmental issues at its core, with tree preservation creating some interesting challenges. No-dig construction was adopted for the roads using ‘cellweb’ technology and permeable paving for the roads and paved areas to reduce surface water run-off.
