"Our existing sports hall was a large building with two full indoor tennis courts, but it was asbestos clad, leaked and was unheated. Our initial attempts at procuring a new sports hall, through an architect-led approach, resulted in a grand scheme costing several millions of pounds and over our budget. We were delighted to find Ball Hall who had the vision and foresight to retain the steel frame and slab of the existing building and provide a fantastic multi-use venue but for a fraction of the cost. The project ran smoothly from start to finish with everyone working in a collaborative way."
