The Manor Center

The Manor Centre was previously a teaching building for Broxtowe College along with the facility for the 6th Beeston Scouts Group. The existing school buildings have been transformed into 18 stunning 1 and 2 bedroom modern apartments, 3 newly built contemporary buildings have been constructed having 63 apartments.

 

The Scouts have benefited by moving into a purpose built 2 storey facility comprising of a sports hall, stage, fully fitted kitchen, lift, offices, committee and project room. Externally they have a garage, a store and a large grassed and slabbed area. There is also a 4 storey social housing building built for Derwent Housing this comprises of 15 flats.

 

The existing teaching building was refurbished leaving part sandblasted walls and where possible exposed timber trusses. New timber bespoke windows were installed along with the sympathetic restoration of the stone and brick façades.

 

The 3 individual new build apartment blocks varied between 2 to 6 storeys built around individual steel frames, each building had a mixture of modern and traditional façade treatments these being brick, stone, Permarock insulated render and Cedar timber boarding. The windows installed were polyester powder coated aluminium double glazed units.

 

All apartments benefited from the installation of American white oak veneered door sets, luxury kitchens comprising of an integrated Smeg glass hob, oven, fridge and freezer, dishwasher, microwave, extractor hood and washer/dryer. Black granite worktops were used as a contrast to the gloss white door and drawer fronts. Living, kitchen and hallways had laminate flooring, bathrooms and ensuites had ceramictiles and bedrooms had 100% wool carpets. All master bedrooms had a bespoke wardrobe fitted. Audio access control was a standard for each apartment. Some apartments had slabbed balcony areas while others had steel, glass and timber bolt on balconies.

 

Communal areas had large staircases and lobby which were carpeted, 5 lifts were installed to the 3 buildings giving access to all floors.

 

Externally there was secured parking for 66 cars access to the semi underground parking area was via secured automated vehicle gate. At first floor level a large hard landscaped open courtyard was constructed over the car park area giving access to the 3 buildings and grassed areas.
