Collett & Farmer unveil the new child and parent centre for the Coram family 

The 3,700 sq m building designed by architects Collett & Farmer replaces a number of dilapidated buildings including a late 19th C swimming pool and small mortuary building. The new building will provide much needed childcare facilities, including a new health centre focused on children’s needs, crèches and parents centre promoting good parenting and serving 600 local families as well as a training and arts centre for the excellent work the charity does in promoting and actively demonstrating child welfare both at a local and national level. The building will be one of a new generation of highly sustainable projects now being built in London and is naturally ventilated throughout and will include rainwater recycling, passive solar control, passive cooling and is designed to accommodate solar panels on the roof to achieve renewable energy requirements on site and to obtain the highest possible rating under the BRE assessment method for sustainability.
