The White Lodge Centre’s history dates back to the early 1950’s, when a group of parents with children suffering from cerebral palsy set up a small treatment centre in Worplesdon Village Hall. They soon realised the need to create a purpose built treatment centre and began a fundraising campaign raising £40,000 for the new centre. This resulted in the admission of children to the treatment centre in 1962.
The site has undergone numerous development work overtime, constantly aiming to continue to improve and enhance the facility which continues to this day.
Our ByrneLooby team of experts in London undertook a thorough inspection followed by structural engineering advice to ensure the development of the £2 million construction scheme. This included the process of getting a new Adult Resource Centre from planning to tender within a very tight 2½ month time frame. The single storey building, shaped in a crescent contains a complex curving roof of steel frame construction. The steel work is exposed, requiring care in the setting out and detailing to ensure compatibility with the internal arrangement and design aesthetics.
