Houlton constructed an exciting new Discovery Centre for The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust at Spurn Point. The project commenced May 2017 and was officially handed over and opened in March 2018.

We worked in partnership with Mason Clark Associates as the Structural Engineers and also Salt who were incumbant Architects.

THE SITE

Spurn is an internationally important nature reserve with sensitive areas that require a careful balance for both people and wildlife to benefit. Without this, Spurn’s natural heritage will be at risk, its unique location and habitats are like nowhere else in Yorkshire.

THE NEED FOR A VISITOR CENTRE

The previous visitor offer and facilities at Spurn were not fit for purpose, especially for an increasingly varied audience, attracted by the so-called ‘Springwatch’ effect. Recent years have seen a drop in visitor numbers by more than half. Existing facilities are not flood resilient and have a limited lifespan due to coastal erosion. Improved car parking is required to manage vehicle numbers and movements.

THE PREFERRED CENTRE LOCATION

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s chosen location met an exhaustive list of criteria, ranging from Heritage Coast and highways requirements, to visual and wildlife impact, and future sustainability and strategic location to manage visitor movements and interaction. It is a location that allowed a state of the art, flood resilient building.
