Champions Church





Client: Champions Church

Value: £2,000,000

Programme: 43 weeks

Completion Date: January 2010

This project was for the construction of a contemporary design church in Netherton, Dudley. 

We first undertook site stabilisation works through Vibro-compaction and installed reinforced concrete foundations and column bases. 


The Building comprises of  a steel frame with curtain walling to the ground floor and blockwork walls insulated and rendered using the Permarock system.  A Power floated concrete floor slab to the whole building was laid over insulated boards.


The 832 seat semi-circular, tiered auditorium was under Contractors design and we ensured this was modeled to be acoustically superior.  We used steelwork and in-situ concrete for the tiered seating in order to reduce deflection during use.


The roof was a built up system using insulation between two skins of sheet metal, with a rubberised single skin membrane above.


A highly complex, linked lighting and sound system was supplied and installed by our specialist sub-contractor.


Access roads were laid to tarmac and the car park was a combination of tarmac and porous surfacing.
