Project Viewing Gallery

As winter draws close and the weather starts to bite, we’ve some exciting news on a new development at the park.
We’ve been working with Logic Architecture to find an affordable solution to creating a warm space for spectators.
The images in this post will,  hopefully, give you a feel of what we are trying to create.
We will be looking at the project in two phases. Phase one will be to create an independent floor above the existing reception and toilet area using a permanent scaffold structure.
Then phase two will be to self-build a room on top that will be heated and provide viewing over the park.
The Architects are now working with a scaffold company, and their structural engineer, to finalise the details of creating the independent floor, and building control, to ensure it meets building regulations.
Over the past couple of years we have saved money and received donations from British Airways, Darlington Business Club, JLB Building and Roofing, and our donations jar, which will help us to pay for the first phase.
We are now starting to raise the funds for phase two, which will cost six to eight thousand pounds. As a registered charity we are busy applying for grants to help us achieve the funding we need, but park users, and supporters, can also help and donate via a justgiving page, or direct to 4Motion Darlington (speak with Nigel 07985468606) or you may be able to donate time and help with the self-build of the heated room. Any help is always greatly appreciated!

Re timescales the architects and scaffold company have just met and working to finalise the plans with building control. We’ll keep you all updated as we move forward.
