Upton Country Park, Poole

15 Mar 2023 at 5:33 PM

We have completed delivery of sustainability services for BCP Council on the new Welcome Centre at Upton Country Park.

The new building has been delivered by contractor Greendale Construction and Western Design Architects has been built using local Purbeck stone walling and sweet chestnut cladding and is complete with a bio-diverse living meadow roof.

The centre will act as a ‘front door’ to the country park and will connect visitors with the heritage of the landscape. It boasts interactive and immersive displays bringing the park’s history to life, provide a glimpse inside the Grade II* listed Upton House, and explores the importance of the varied landscapes within the park.

Three bug hotels have been created and framed in the building’s walls alongside swallow nest cups and bat boxes to encourage even more nature into the park and around the centre.

The centre was delivered as part of Upton Country House’s Discovery Project and has been supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund and National Lottery Community Fund, as part of its Parks for People programme.

"From start to finish every member of staff was approachable, knowledgeable and a true pleasure to deal with.  The team were incredibly quick to respond to all my questions and are experts in their respective fields. I wouldn’t think twice about using Build Energy again and look forward to working with them in the near future."
