105th Sheffield Scout HQ

Sheffield, High Green

Back to Civic & Commercial Sector

The Scouts were keen to replace their exsiting 1960's hut.

The Brief

The old Sheffield Scout’s headquarters whilst structurally sound was unfortunately no longer fit for purpose. The Scouts were keen to replace the old wooden structure with a modern brick build. Funding was achieved through a Youth Investment Fund that Race Cottam supported the Scouts in securing.

The Design

​​The new building provides new hall space, storage spaces, a kitchen, and meeting room to allow the group to continue and expand its busy program of membership and community activities. The design focused on an asymmetric roof standing seam tent form providing a covered approach to the front and rear for outdoor activities.

Brick gables with areas of projecting feature brickwork complete the elevation. The plan is split along a central corridor with hall spaces to one side and two floors of support spaces to the other, creating a strong approach and clear wayfinding for building users.

The Outcome

The project was successfully tendered in the summer of 2023 with work starting on site in the autumn and due to complete in Easter 2024.
