John MacDougall Visitors Centre
Animal Health Trust, Newmarket
This project consisted of the refurbishment of an under-used stable block into a brand-new state-of-the-art Lecture Theatre.
Providing a 60-seat lecture theatre with computerised lighting, acoustics and electric blinds to enhance the Trusts education programme for vets, scientists and people involved with the charity work.
The building was occupied and we had to work with the clients in refurbishing certain areas in certain phases. The Visitors centre is a Listed building therefore we worked closely with the Conservation Officer.
The mechanical and electrical was all contractually designed by Needhams. HRH Princess Royal, President of the AHT opened the educational facility with local press in attendance.
