Tang Hall, City of York Council

The Challenge

A traditional quality and appearance were specified for this £500,000 children’s centre. To gain planning permission, its exterior appearance had to match the existing school, including external columns and traditional slate-look roof. Internally, the d├ęcor needed to be multi-coloured and the building’s layout and facilities had to be suitable for numerous uses including education, healthcare and childcare.

The Thurston Solution

Thurston provided a turnkey building solution for the development, ensuring planning permission would be granted and minimising on-site disruption. Architectural features included brick tile cladding to speed up the building programme and an aesthetically attractive lightweight slate-look roof.
