Case Studies - Dalby Forest, North York Moors

Dalby Forest, North York Moors

Visitor centre 2007

One of the ways to ensure that new leisure facilities are safe is to bring in technical expertise at the design stage. Specialists in the relevant disciplines were consulted to ensure that the retail and café areas were appropriately designed and laid out to achieve safe visitor flows.

Considerable care has been taken to minimise the impact of the centre. The design incorporates:

  • locally sourced timber
  • energy efficiency and conservation strategies
  • heating with a boiler that burns wood chips
  • natural and sustainable materials
  • renewable energy systems including a wind turbine and a dramatic array of photovoltaic panels
