Reception and Office Building for Parkstone Yacht Club

Client: Parkstone Yacht Club

Location: Poole, Dorset

The Parkstone Yacht Club is situated on the north shore of Poole harbour.  The club had been using Portacabins for office and reception facilites, which projected the wrong image to the 2500 members.

As the proposed site was on reclaimed land and the budget and space were at a premium, a Volumetric Off Site Manufactured building from Pinelog was the perfect solution.  This process involves constructing, wiring, plumbing and fitting out the building in Pinelog's specially equipped factory.  The building is then delivered to site on caravan type transporters, ususally in two pieces.  Once on site the two halves are placed on their foundations and bolted back together to provide a complete, ready-to-use building.

Energy efficiency was a high priority, with an 'A' rated boiler and low energy lighting used throughout.  Low maintenance Siberian larch cladding (from sustainable sources) and uPVC windows and doors mean the building will require minimum maintenance.

The client finds that the new facility "has created a lot of favourable comments from around the marina"... "the solution came in well within budget and responds to our needs perfectly."
