The Bentley team completed the shell-only construction of an amazing new Scout HQ for the 4th Farnham (Tongham) Scout Group in May 2022.
The original Scout building was a wooden, pre-war, ex-Army hut. It was cold, leaked, had no integral heating and the kitchen and toilet facilities were in poor condition. The group set to work fundraising and, working with Davtee Ltd Chartered Building Consultancy, the group obtained planning permission to replace the hut with a purpose-built HQ in 2020.
The Bentley team assisted with budgets and designs, offering various options to suit the group’s tight budget. The final solution saw Bentley providing groundworks, SIPS structure, timber cladding, roofing and Velux rooflights, handing over a weathertight building for fit-out by the scout group with a combination of contractors and volunteers.
We can’t wait to see the finished building and know the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and other community groups will enjoy many years of fun in this new, warm and efficient HQ.
