Bungay Honeypot Centre
Suffolk

Scope: Public Consultation

Client: BBC/ Entreprise East

Value: £3 million

A much needed community building incorporating commercial and other municipal uses. The centre capitalises on a hybrid construction using thermally heavyweight masonry cross-walls supporting prefabricated timber elements and employs renewable and heat pump technologies. A sustainable material philosophy was adopted with high levels of organic insulation and a green accessible roof in response to a brief requiring a low-carbon building that demonstrated best contemporary design practice. The centre is integrated with play and other outdoor facilities and was developed in consultation with a number of interest and user groups.  The scheme was unanimously supported at public consultation and full-filled the objectives of galvanising local opinion.
