LEC 11, The Former Indoor Riding School

Location: Cavalary Road, Colchester, Essex

Date: 2011

This unique building was the Former Indoor Riding School where Military horses where trained. A Listed Building and in relatively good condition, the challenge was to find a new use for it that allowed the cavernous interior to be still fully appreciated.

We obtained planning consent to convert the building into retail space, but following discussions with the local Doctors Practice Dr St Joseph and Partners who were bursting at the seams at their current premises in nearby Creffield Road we sold the building to specialist health care developers GPI Group. They have now completed the restoration and conversion of the building into a stunning medical centre that really does make the best use of this fantastic building and which will be enjoyed by thousands of Colchester residents
