arkLAB’s commission for the Rothwell campus of the Hope Church comprised a 650 seat Church auditorium, support facilities, amenities and associated site works and represents a prototype for future developments on further campuses.  For this project arkLAB were commissioned as design development, detailing and documentation architects by Evans Built in a collaborative design and construct contract and based, in part, on a concept prepared by Phillips Smith Conwell Architects.  A key part of our role was working with the client, and contractor, to guide an informed value management process to achieve performance and budget outcomes.
