Academy Day Care Centre, Nottingham – Extension to the Existing Nursery
JCAD were appointed on this challenging project to double the capacity of the current nurseries intake with a modest sized extension.
We first assessed the use of the current nursery, how efficient the layout was and quickly identified a number of area’s within the building which weren’t being used to their optimum potential and were able to create a large number of additional spaces with careful re planning of the space and relocating the main entrance in a more central location (thus removing a lot of wasted circulation space).
In addition to the alterations we also carefully designed a modest extension to the side of the existing nursery and also carefully planned alterations to the current car park layout in order to satisfy parking requirements imposed by the local planning authority.
Planning approval was then successfully negotiated with Nottingham City Council in the autumn of 2014 and we understand that construction works were due to commence spring / summer of 2015.
