This new Pavilion Project completes the final phase of major development at Somerset County Cricket Club. The work required the demolition of the Old Pavilion, St. James Building /Deane Suites, and Ancillary Buildings to facilitate the construction of the new Somerset Pavilion.
The project provides a first class facility for Members, Spectators, and Visitors to enjoy domestic cricket, and enables the Somerset Pavilion to be used to generate commercial revenue from non-cricket related activity. The facility also allows Somerset County Cricket Club to meet the technical specifications for International Cricket in combination with other ground improvement works.
The project comprised of a new 1650 seat grand stand, restaurant, retail outlet, office areas, conference & media facilities, roof top terrace and feature canopy structure. The main frames were formed from hot rolled steel works with hollow core plank floors, and precast stadia elements for the seating areas. The ground conditions required a deep foundation solution, therefore piles were utilised in combination with ground beams and a suspended ground floor slab.
The project was designed using 3D analysis (Building Designer) software and detailed in REVIT.

Structural design for a new production facility at Daedalus, Gosport. This new facility will has a production floor of c.4500m² and a two-storey office facility attached, providing approximately 800m² of meeting, offices and canteen facilities.
With poor ground conditions the solution was to provide a piled slab solution to cope with the extremely heavily loaded production floor. By rationalising the loading from the machines and forklifts we were able to manage to limit foundation costs. Jubb were appointment to provide services up to Stage 3+ to enable to Client to procure the project on a D&B basis. Due to the complexity of the final machine fit-out and the extremely tight tolerances on construction to match manufacturing requirements, the Client decided to retain Jubb on the Client side throughout the project.
In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, our business resilience planning is now being implemented. Whilst we have not closed our offices at this time, we have empowered all staff to work remotely should they choose to do so, and our business infrastructure is fully enabled to seamlessly support the transition to this style of working. Additionally, Government advice may shortly dictate the need for us to make the closure of offices compulsory in the interests of safeguarding wider public health.
We continue to be fully operational but these measures are likely to produce a change to our working patterns.
You may therefore find that you have difficulty reaching us by our main office and direct dial landline telephone numbers but all staff can be still contacted by email, mobile numbers and Microsoft Teams.
