Kirkintilloch community hall opens its doors
November 4 2014
Designed by macmon architects on behalf of hub West Scotland the scheme replaces an existing centre with a more flexible space; including new meeting rooms, cafe and a central hall for use by local groups and organisations.
The hall also includes its own biomass boiler to meet its energy and heating needs.
In a statement macmon said: “The design is simple and rational with a robust masonry public façade and a softer timber façade addressing an enclosed community courtyard and landscaped garden to the rear of the building. The fabric of the building will achieve a high standard of air tightness and thermal efficiency with heating and hot water load provided through a biomass boiler.”
The building was constructed by Fleming Buildings, structural engineers Morgan Sindall, services engineers Tüd Süd Wallace Whittle and quantity surveyors Allan and Hanel.
