MWA Serves up Sports Hall for Beckets

Martin Walsh Architectural, has transformed a former theatre and multi-court playground at St Thomas à Becket School in Wakefield, creating a six-court badminton sized sports hall with gymnasium.

 Working alongside Millpark Construction on the £1m contract, MWA designed the steel framed, detached 15,468 sq.ft sports building.

 Enhancing provision for students the team has maximised space by incorporating a mezzanine floor level to accommodate a fully equipped fitness suite, viewing gallery and unisex toilets. The new facility also includes a sports science classroom and changing rooms.

 Marcus Walsh, of MWA comments: “The new sports hall at St. Thomas à Beckets was designed to maximise space; our goal was to create a flexible environment for a range of sporting activities. It’s an exciting addition to the school’s facilities, which will also be utilised by the local community.”

 Efficiency has been integral to the design, with a Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery System installed within the mezzanine level and a Radiant Heating Panel System in the hall.
