The Salvation Army, Chelmsford

Constructed entirely of timber & cloaked in an undulating zinc roof, the £2 million Salvation Army Citadel Corps in Chelmsford provides 900 sq m new accommodation for the mission. The project illustrates our commitment to pioneering modern methods of construction to maximise the potential of sustainable materials. The building is constructed using a cross-laminated timber panel system, akin to jumbo plywood and offers all the advantages of reinforced concrete construction without the environmental cost. A rich variety of façade treatments, including a spectacular tower offers much to passers-by, lifts an otherwise drab neighbourhood.
