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 was completed and opened to the public in 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.
