CIOB chartered building company (CBC) Greendale Construction has successfully completed work on a new annexe for St John’s Church in Broadstone, Dorset.
The new-build annexe, named the NorthReach Project, provides a multi-purpose venue.
Starting construction in May 2022, the work comprised refurbishment of the redundant choir vestry to provide a meeting room in the existing church, and construction of a main annexe with atrium and multi-purpose space, with associated office, kitchen/servery, general storage and toilet accommodation.
A plant room was formed in the existing basement and alterations completed to the church fabric.
The NorthReach annexe, together with the new church meeting room, will provide a community space for exercise classes, meetings, free concerts and exhibitions, afterschool clubs and craft and support groups for all ages.\
