Forgewood Community Centre

Mixed use development consisting of new community hub, lettable office space and main offices for Forgewood Housing Co-operative.

The project saw the demolition of the previous Forgewood Community Centre and the construction of a replacement community hub facility on the site. The existing centre had fallen into disrepair and was no longer viable practically, environmentally or economically.

The new centre brings together several community resources within a single location in an inclusive and sustainable modern building. A multi-use main hall and areas for local youth groups, adult learning, IT and a small community café forms the ground floor, with the design focused on the flexibility & integration of the spaces.

Forgewood Housing Co-operative becomes the anchor tenant on the first floor of the building, which also houses shared meeting rooms and office space for use within the community. The new centre will provide a much needed community asset for Forgewood, which will be able to be fully utilised and enjoyed by all in the local area
