Sports Hall and Pitches, North Herts College, Hitchin


North Hertfordshire College

Saunders were appointed to design a new sports building and 3G football pitch. The contemporary facilities sit within an existing further education college site and formed part of a mixed use application which also includes a residential development by CALA Homes which will help fund the development of the new sports facilities. The existing facilities were in need of modernisation and the new scheme has brought sports facilities at the college into the twenty-first century, with a new sports hall, reception, gym and changing rooms. The buildings connect with the existing college campus and are accessed via landscaped areas of public realm, which negotiate the significant level differences across the site. The proposals meet the requirements of the college curriculum serve the wider community as an out of hours sports facility.

We worked closely with the college, cost consultants, planning consultants and sports consultants to develop an acceptable scheme which is affordable and meets the requirements of Sport England.

The scheme received a resolution to grant planning permission in November 2020, with work completed in 2022. The newly completed facilities are fully booked for use by students and the community for the next 2 years.
