Wealden Crematorium

This project is an award winner

The impressive new build Crematorium on behalf of Wealden District Council has now been delivered providing a much-needed facility for the local community. Set in 25 acres of beautiful countryside Wealden’s New Multi Faith facility and contemporary 120 seat chapel is surrounded by glorious wildflower meadows, woodland and pastures and offers a peaceful and sensitive setting to say goodbye to loved ones.

The site features carefully planned gardens, woodland areas, grazing and wildflower meadows. New hedgerows have been planted together with nearly 8000 trees and more than 4500 shrubs and 4700 herbaceous plants all of which significantly enhance to local environment.

With the creative and innovative design of this project it was vital that the administration of cost control and project management received the live attention our clients have come to expect and our reactive and flexible approach to contract administration ensured a value for money project delivered on time.

“The completion of Wealden’s first crematorium is a landmark occasion for this council. We are incredibly proud of the results so far. It has delivered a facility meeting the highest standards for a crematorium, whilst giving great consideration to the natural landscape. The results in a relatively short space of time are impressive.
