maber architects were lead consultant for the creation of the new single storey 160 sqm centre which includes new car parking. The modern design was developed in close association with Derby City Council and the school.
The centre comprises a multi-purpose community room, a health room and interview room. The plan has been deliberately kept simple, allowing ease of way finding with a central corridor that provides obvious direct access to the main rooms. The central spine will be flooded with natural daylight.
Oakwood was identified as one of three sites to receive a new SureStart Children’s Centre.
Eventually every community will be served by a SureStart service children’s centre, offering children under five years old and their families a place to receive seamless integrated services and information to ensure every child gets the best possible start in life.
