Project Detail

Get Busy Living Centre, Burrough-on-the-Hill

Small Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2018 Finalist

Get Busy Living Centre, brainchild of the Matt Hampson Foundation, is a state-of-the- art facility for those who have suffered life- changing injuries through sport.

It is somewhere for injured athletes and their families to spend time together and meet others in similar situations, as well as offering services like physical rehabilitation.

Established by Matt Hampson, the former England Under-21 rugby player who suffered a life-changing injury during sport, it provides a place for beneficiaries to spend time in a supportive and well-equipped environment.

Project Overview

Eight companies collaborated on the construction of the Get Busy Living Centre and, with local supply chain partners, saved the Matt Hampson Foundation more than £1million by providing services and materials for free or cost price.

At market value the build would have cost the Matt Hampson Foundation £367.77 per square foot, but instead it cost £163.38 per square foot.

Built on a site of historic interest – a former aircraft hangar that was used in the war – the transformation was important to the local community. It’s now a prominent feature in the local landscape with a cladding made from copper and timber to maintain the overall look of the original building.
