Frilford Heath Golf Club

Frilford Heath Golf Club

                  New Pro Shop, Frilford Heath Golf Club, Oxfordshire Frilford Heath Golf Club is one of the best golf venues in the South of England and offers three championship golf courses. Clarkson Alliance was appointed by the club to provide Cost Management services. Situated between the car park and the main club house, the pro shop was constructed using cedar and cotswold stone to fit into the local context of the site. The performance centre offers visitors the opportunity to practise and play on some of the world’s leading courses with the help of an innovative golf simulator. BIM coordination was used by the design team to develop the proposals. This allowed an offsite manufacture solution for the superstructure to be selected for the unique design. The cross laminated timber superstructure was assembled in two and a half weeks and provided the finished surface for the shop ceiling and terrace canopy. The completed building is a high quality facility that will serve the club well into the future. Services provided Clarkson Alliance provided Cost Management services.
