All Saint’s Caring Association

After being successful in a the competitive tendering process required for this scheme, due to public funding being the making up the contract sum, ADMS Architects were placed in position of design team leader for this important cross community based facility. Having liaised extremely closely with the committee of All Saints’ Caring Association to meet their brief requirements, we then gained full planning and building control approval. From here ADMS led the project through to completion on site, providing a full supervisory and certification service. All aspects of the design were undertaken, right down to kitchen colours and signage details. Completed on time and on budget, the project / building was opened in 2013 to many great compliments and has thrived since its inception. With its very strategic and visual site location, the involvement we have had with this significant local facility, comes with much pride.

Glendermott Church Hall

This existing Church Hall is used on a very regular basis for the large Glendermott Presbyterian Church membership. As such, it was our brief to provide upgraded disabled toilet and access facilities, as well as improvements to the existing toilet facilities – so as to both improve them visually and also accommodate small children who attend toddlers groups. As part of the front extension, which would contain the new disabled toilet, a new sheltered entrance canopy was provided, along with which the new access ramp and steps were incorporated below it. This small but very practical and visually improved project has so far proved to meet all the brief requirements.

Limavady Baptist Church

A long running project, due to changing brief requirements, planning policies and overall layout difficulties, we were delighted to have been able to bring this scheme to a very successful conclusion. With an expanding congregation, that in turn required increased after hours space for youth clubs and other groups, it was a challenge to both find space within the site boundaries to accommodate these, as well as link on a practical level with the existing Church layout. By internally switching the orientation of the main church body, we were able to then create an improved access and direct link to the new social / meeting spaces and large upper storey function hall. This, along with disabled access to all levels has now remodelled the entire building so as to be fit for the numerous users for many future years ahead.

Fountain Dance Association

Being located very close to our own offices, it was a pleasure to be involved with a project that has seen a large disused retail building being brought back to life through a change of use basis. ADMS have been responsible for all work associated with this change, including initial feasibility studies, planning application, building control application, tendering process and project management. Being a non-profit organisation which helps bring communities (especially children) together through dance and fitness, we have helped greatly in the funding administration process also. It has been rewarding to see the many hours of work that this has involved be turned into a reality – with the evidence of much improved footfall within the local area. Phase 2 of this project is currently underway and so more info / photos will be uploaded as work progresses.
