Victoria Community Centre, Bridgwater

A "Pathfinder" project for the South-West, funded by SWRDA and Sedgemoor District Council, providing community facilities for a recognised deprived area.  These include community meeting and performance spaces, life-long-learning, start-up business units, Sure Start children's centre, medical centre and pharmacy, all set around a 'courtyard' concept linked directly to the adjacent Victoria Park.

Its conception and design development involved extensive community participation.

The building included many sustainable features, including solar thermal and pv panels, rain-water harvesting and extensive use of natural lighting and ventilation to all areas.
