Shinfield Parish Council, in partnership with Wokingham Borough Council and the Royal Institute of British Architects Competitions department are inviting architect led multi-disciplinary teams from around the world to enter a design competition with associated tender for a new community centre in Shinfield, Berkshire.

Shinfield Parish Council (SPC) is seeking a multi-disciplinary architect led team for a new community centre to provide facilities to meet the needs of the local community.

New community facilities have been identified as essential infrastructure within the Wokingham Borough Core Strategy Development Plan and their expected usage defined within the Wokingham Borough Council Shaping Our New Communities Document.

The proposed 560m2 new building will be situated next to the existing Parish Hall standing on the site of the old British Legion building. The new building could be a single or two storey building, which could be linked physically, or by courtyards or covered walkways to the existing parish hall, allowing the existing parish hall to continue to provide additional space over that proposed in the new building.

New facilities are required to meet the future demands of the growing community, in the longer term there may be an opportunity for further expansion on the site if demand for further space was deemed necessary by way of demolishing and rebuilding the existing parish hall to make way for an extension to the new building.
