Scotts has started construction work on a much-anticipated second cricket pavilion for Cropredy Cricket Club, located near Banbury.
The club is keen to continue to meet huge demand for the game in the area and is in the process of building a new second ground and pavilion adjacent to the current ground. After a lengthy 2 year planning process and continued in-depth consultation with Cherwell District Council, full planning permission was granted in January 2018.
Scotts has architecturally designed the new cricket pavilion and is working closely with the cricket club to offer a complete ‘turnkey’ service from concept to completion. In the end, Scotts will have designed, engineered, manufactured and installed the building to meet the required deadlines for this established cricket club.
The new cricket pavilion will include a club room, with kitchen and bar facilities, new changing rooms with showers, an umpire and officials’ changing room and large raised verandah for watching the game in play.
The building is designed as a ‘hybrid’, using a traditional panelised timber frame with a cantilevered glulam beam supporting the main roof structure in the club room, to create a natural aesthetic and wow factor. The superstructure is being manufactured in-house at Scotts’ factory in Thrapston. It will be delivered to the Cropredy grounds in kit form and craned in place on site. All machining and plate connections will be carried out in-house by Scotts’ joiners to millimetre accuracy prior to assembly.
It is hoped that the new cricket pavilion will be completed by the end of August 2018.
