When The Haven 2000 Nursery in Bedford came up with plans to expand and alter their accommodation recently, they approached PCMS Design to help take their ideas and turn them into reality. The Haven 2000 is a leading nursery provider in the town, offering excellent levels of childcare and with a programme of continuous improvement.
We became involved at an early stage, developing concept designs which involved the demolition of a single storey section of the building at the rear, and constructing in its place a two storey extension. The extended building will provide an additional 45m2 of playroom and activity space, and alongside this some internal reconfiguration will improve access to ancillary areas such as the kitchen and staff room.
In addition, access to the garden areas will be made easier and a new large canopy will be constructed for outdoor play. When complete, the Nursery will be able to accommodate up to 60 children each day, and provide places for an additional 16 children in the 2-3 year olds category.
We have just submitted an application for planning permission to Bedford Borough Council.
