Make has won its first detailed planning approval for this new judo hall for Dartford Judo Club in Kent. The £3.5 million scheme is being commissioned by Dartford Borough Council to replace the club's existing premises - an ex-military drill hall that is to be demolished.
The building is approached through a landscaped garden that leads into the doubleheight lobby. This lobby is the heart of the building, around which are the main circulation and a bar/social area for parents and visitors.
The project is being run as a two-stage design and build contract, and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2005.
