Located on the edge of the Beavers Estate and close to the Heathrow runways, the community centre replaces a vandalized 1970’s building and provides extended and improved services.
The centre is designed for three organisations - a youth club, the local library and Hounslow Sure Start. It will also be available for use by the wider community.
Concrete construction is used to tackle noise from the airport and provide thermal mass for our energy strategy. To make the centre accessible and welcoming, the entrance space has no security fencing to the street. Entrance-side security is provided. When the centre is not in use, easily replaceable sliding plywood shutters close over the full-height ground floor street windows, and polycarbonate sheeting protects the large areas of glazing above.
