We are a student-led team working in collaboration with The Castle Community Centre, which is run by Patricroft Community Group (CIC) in Eccles. The Castle offers a safe place for people of all ages and backgrounds to come together as a community to play, learn, and work. The refurbishment of this community building seeks to improve the existing facilities in order to offer greater quality, flexibility and healthier spaces for different interest community groups to meet. Additionally, the retrofit aspect of the project intents to improve the energy efficiency of the building by addressing deficiencies of the building fabric, as well as the existing heating and ventilations systems. Our role is to assist the Community Centre with their planning application through the production of visualisation drawings of the refurbished spaces, and sustainability strategy diagrams in order to promote the project further and secure funding!
