Mountsorrel Memorial Centre
The design and construction of a multi-purpose facility for the local community
Stepnell were proud to have been appointed by Mountsorrel War Memorial Trust and Mountsorrel Parish Council to design and build this exciting new build multi-purpose facility, designed by Nottingham architectural practice Franklin Ellis, in place of the former Mountsorrel Memorial Hall building.
The new two-storey building Memorial Centre building provides a theatre, a café space, two shops and a crèche, as well as a music and arts performance and practice room, meeting and conference rooms. Externally we have provided car parking facilities for more than sixty vehicles.
The new building incorporates traditional materials including the well-known local granite. It also features large areas of high-specification glazing, a striking zinc-clad tiered roof and energy-saving solar panels.
As well as providing a number of new construction jobs for local people, this project also provided work experience opportunities with Stepnell working with local business volunteering charity, Leicestershire Cares, to organise a number of work experience days.
