New sports hall for Hurstpierpoint College

Hurstpierpoint College is a thriving, co-educational day and boarding school for pupils from age 4 to 18 years, situated within a 140-acre campus, surrounded by beautiful countryside on the borders of the South Downs National Park. Importance is placed on an all-round, as well as a core academic, education and offers an extensive sporting programme to promote a healthy, active lifestyle for all pupils.

New sports hall building needed

The college’s sports hall had become oversubscribed in bad weather, resulting in cramped facilities. Head of Sport Rob Kift had been wanting a dedicated cardio facility for years and prioritised a new building for that as one of the most important items for their annual budget, choosing Aganto through his LinkedIn connection, Aganto national sales manager Ian Mackenzie.

Ian explains:
“I was delighted when Rob got in touch. We quickly realised how important this project was; not just in terms of health and safety on the school grounds, but because sports is such an integral part of the college timetable. We wanted to erect an alternative, long standing sports hall facility as quickly and securely as possible so the pupils could train and be active in much better surroundings without the disruption and cost of a traditional building.

“This project demonstrates perfectly the adaptability of Aganto temporary buildings, and how they can be used in all sectors in a variety of applications.”

Insulated temporary buildings – the perfect sports facility

Rob Kift adds:

“Ian advised the college to have a 10m x 20m x 3.2m insulated building which was warm enough and big enough to house both pupils and equipment. The sports structure was built in a week and we are delighted with the result. The pupils can train in comfort and space again.”
