Inspire Centre, Calderdale College
Jefferson Sheard was commissioned by Calderdale College to deliver an exciting yet cost effective design for a new, forward-looking and progressive sports and learning facility. Central to the College's requirements was an affordable design addressing key issues such as the lack of on-site sporting facilities. The new facilities also provide a morale boosting development for the College and the Community, raising the profile of the College. The new centre was designed to support students studying Sports and Public Services, Dance, Science, Animal Care & Management and Horticulture. The pitch and sports hall are open to the community for bookings at evenings and weekends. The design also includes the refurbishment of the PWC Entrance, Reception and refectory spaces, and incorporates a new canopy to the PWC building entrance. The development was funded by the College with SFA support and the building design was developed to include environmentally aware and low carbon technologies.
