Beacon Church Centre - Building Project
The project is designed to achieve four main aims:
• Meet the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act in regards to people with mobility and hearing difficulties
• Link the two buildings
• Bring the buildings up to standards fit for the 21st Century.
• Make the buildings more suitable for use by church and community
The major part of the project is to demolish the current office, toilets, kitchen and small sanctuary. A new building will then be erected linking the halls and classrooms with the church. This building will incorporate a new entrance to the buildings with ramped external access, a new kitchen, toilets, disabled toilet and office. Additional works will bring improvements to the rest of the buildings.
