CLEOBURY COUNTRY CENTRE

CLEOBURY COUNTRY CENTRE (Cleobury Mortimer, Shropshire) by Contemporary and Modern architects Baart Harries Newall (BHN architects) based in Shrewsbury.
Cleobury Country Centre
An new community based project to provide a centre for small businesses and pupils at Locon Childe School.
Cleobury Country Centre is a community based project to provide a centre of training and excellence for the local small business community, conference and teaching spaces for the school’s A level Business Studies course, business starter offices, and a public library.
 
The project was initiated by a working group of local businesses, in partnership with Lacon Childe School – where the centre is located.
 
The project showcases sustainable technology, and is heated by a ground source heat pump.  Electricity is generated by a photovoltaic array on the roof, and the wall and roof  construction is of super-insulated timber frame.
 
External walls are clad with untreated native larch boarding, and the roof covering is an extensive sedum roof, with a mix of native plant species.
 
The branch library was a late addition to the project partnership, arising from public consultation.  The benefits of a shared reception facility were clear, as Cleobury Country as a self funding, non-profit organisation.
 
The project was funded by Advantage West Midlands.
