Newmarket Catholic Church, Newmarket

Roman Catholic Diocese of East Anglia

Saunders Boston Ltd were appointed by the Roman Catholic Diocese of East Anglia to undertake a full Architectural service, as lead consultant, to repair and refurbish an existing 1960’s church and provide new Parish facilities.

The scheme involved complex land transfers that enabled the Diocese to obtain funding towards development works as well as land alongside the existing church which could be redeveloped.

Works were split into two phases, with phase one focusing on the creation of new parish centre accommodation and facilities including meeting rooms, offices, kitchens, a bar, toilets, main hall and a private garden of reflection.  Phase two focused on the repair, refurbishment and enhancement of the existing 1960’s church including provision of new heating, a new entrance, new bespoke furniture, new lighting, internal reorganisation to create a private chapel, sympathetic building fabric repairs and site-wide hard and soft landscaping.

Completed on time and in-budget, the scheme has proved to be a successful and much used addition the local community.
