Eco Hub Community Centre

Gamlingay, South Cambridgeshire

From a standing start, never having been involved in the design process before, a lose association of residents got themselves together as a group to turn a defunct 1970’s community centre in their village, into what the Department for Energy and Climate Change has called ‘one of the greenest community centres in the country’. Dan led the design and procurement of this exemplary community building project over a period of 12 years. It has received national and regional design awards, most notably the Architect of the Year award for Environmental Excellence in 2012.
