Mascott successfully delivered this key project for the Royal Mencap Society as part of their vision to create a world class centre of excellence in early years and family support. This first flagship project provided an early intervention centre and hub, providing support services and embracing the latest technological advances in the field of learning disability.
The project comprised the demolition of the existing school buildings and the erection of a two storey steel framed building, masonry external facades with aluminium glazing and a combination of specialist standing seam and flat roofing systems.
Internally the ground floor comprised the new sensory play areas, therapy and consultation rooms along with the community hub. The first floor provided open office accommodation with cellular offices, meeting rooms and provision of break-out spaces complete with an open shared meeting and coffee area.
Throughout the construction of this project Mascott were integrally involved with the Client and their specialist therapists and support team to ensure all final layouts, colour schemes and sensory provisions were sufficient for their important work with children.
Built within a mainly residential area, regular communications with local residents through our corporate and social responsibility policy, ensured we mitigated any disruption to the local community.
