Bedale Scout Hut

We were awarded the role of main contractor on the demolition of the existing Scout Hut and the construction of the new.  The Client secured funding from several funders as well as raising money over several years.

The new hut was designed to meet the group’s current and future needs and factored in an environmentally friendly structure to reduce the heating cost and integrate the building into the surrounding area.  It is larger than the existing structure and provides additional teaching space for lectures and an office which will also provide the necessary privacy for mixed groups when using the hut for weekend camps.  A large hall has been incorporated as well as a kitchen.

The build work carried out included installing air source heating triple glazed timber windows, timber frame and cladding from sustainable forestry sources.  The external cladding has earned two of our joiners The York Guild of Building a 2014 Craftsmanship Merit Award.  Where possible local subcontractors were used including the electrical contractors who are based in Bedale.

The project was completed safely and to a high standard and to the Client’s tight budget constraints.
