Cricket Pavilions, Harrow School

This is an unusual contract comprising the construction of 2 new cricket pavilions (Buxton and Whitmore), in the grounds of Harrow School. In the summer term the major game at Harrow is cricket.

The design and build contract, the eleventh contract carried for the school, entailed the erection of 2 timber framed structures built on traditional foundations and clad with Western Red Cedar boarding. The roofs were covered with hand-made clay tiles housing vaulted tea rooms, 4 changing rooms and en-suite shower facilities. They also required new services to be run across the playing fields.

Both pavilions achieved a BREEAM rating of ‘Good’.
