In Depth

The project included the construction of a new banqueting suite, plus the refurbishment of the existing banqueting suite, and provision of new catering kitchen with a functional kitchen design to serve the two banqueting suites and bars, and the formation of a new 160 space car park.

The new banqueting suite totalled 4,800 sq.ft. of space in a new steel framed building, designed to seat 140 guests for banqueting or 160 in lecture theatre conditions. This included new entrance hall and reception areas ( all the banquet furniture will be replaced and they are adding a few modern sectional sofas near the entrance), new bar and toilet facilities, cloakrooms and manager’s office.

The new main hall was also designed to double as a Youth Centre for the London Borough of Barnet, and additional facilities were provided in the building for their use, including separate toilets, storage facilities, canteen, & separate entrance.

During construction, alternative arrangements were included to manage the access to the adjacent football ground, and parts of the ground were also upgraded.

P+R Associates took over the patio furniture from the original interior designer who initiated the project. P+R then brought the design to a conclusion, obtained Planning Permission, and managed the whole scheme to completion.
