Burnholme Community Hub, York
The Centre at Burnholme is a new community hub constructed for City of York Council, housing facilities such as a library, café, community space and a nursery. The development is due for completion mid-2018.
We were appointed by Sewell Construction Ltd to provide engineering services for the development, which comprises the refurbishment of an existing loadbearing masonry building and the construction of a new two-storey steel framed extension. Refurbishment works involved the removal of several loadbearing walls, infilling of an existing basement and provision of a new mezzanine floor. A new access road has also been provided which will serve future developments on the site, in addition to the community hub.
