Giving back to the local community

Standish Community Hub was developed by Morris and Persimmon as a gift to the local community as part of their 250 new homes development. It includes a studio, fitness suite, MUGA, all weather pitch, outdoor changing, vending area and associated accommodation, design to be accessible to local residents. GT3 Architects was novated from Morris and Persimmon to Eric Wright Construction.

The building is situated in such a way that provides views in and out of the first floor fitness suite and therefore providing an active frontage to the main road.

In February 2020, the project was shortlisted for an LABC award.

"We are committed to providing more opportunities to help residents get active and healthy in their local communities, all as part of The Deal for Health and Wellness. By working closely with partners, we have been able to secure leisure facilities for the residents of Standish. Research shows that removing the physical barriers to exercise can have massive benefits to the NHS by preventing people getting ill later in life."
