Client: Whittington Heath Golf Club/BHB Architects
Location: Lichfield, Staffordshire
Project value: £18m

CCE were appointed as Civil and Structural Engineers for the entire scheme, as a result of the HS2 trainline project; the existing Clubhouse, Green Keepers Facility and five golf holes were to be demolished and replacement structures erected, on recently purchased adjacent land.

Founded in 1886, being one of the oldest clubs in England; Whittington Heath Golf Club has undergone major redevelopment which comprised the construction of the new Clubhouse, new Green Keepers compound, halfway house, five new holes, a practice range, a new car park, ancillary features, a new access road, and the reworking of five existing holes.

Undertaken in phases, the new access road and car park were constructed first, with the club remaining live and occupied throughout the project, as works had to be completed and operational before the existing structures were demolished. Throughout construction of the Clubhouse, it was imperative to maintain heritage features such as the grandstand canopy, which was used to view the Lichfield races.
