Industry Praise For Landmark Project

Architectural practice HPW has landed a prestigious award from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) for a landmark project at Freshwater Beach Holiday Park in Burton Bradstock on the Dorset Coast.

The Hampshire-based firm won the tourism and leisure category at the RICS South West Awards for the 2,400sqm activity centre. The challenge was to create a structure that complemented the sensitive World Heritage Site location and delivered the owners’ requirement for all-weather facilities.

Incorporating many sustainable features including a ‘green’ roof, which uses native species of salt tolerant grasses and wildflowers, the sensitively designed building sits into, rather than on the landscape. The finished facility, the Jurassic Fun Centre, includes a children’s fun pool, swimming pool, sauna, steam room, spa, gymnasium, hair and beauty salon, bar and restaurant and a six-lane ten-pin bowling alley.
