Client Overview

With a legacy of community service spanning over a century, the 1st Henley & Wootton Scout Group in Warwickshire epitomises the spirit of youth development. Located in the Henley in Arden and Wootton Wawen communities, the group has been a key provider of scouting experiences for all age groups.

In 2020, the 1st Henley & Wootton Scout Group faced a pivotal moment in their journey when their ageing scout hut, once a site office for the Water Board, became unsuitable for further use. Determined to uphold their commitment to the community, the group rallied support in hope for a new, functional scout hut.

Midbrook’s Solution

In 2021, Midbrook Steel Buildings stepped in as the trusted steel-framed building partner to bring the wish of a new scout hut to life. Tasked with groundworks and the construction of the steel-framed building, our team planned and executed the project, ensuring seamless integration with the existing infrastructure and careful attention to design details.

Project Details

Our comprehensive approach included laying an insulated power-floated 200mm slab for the foundation. The steel-framed building, expertly designed and installed by our team here at Midbrook, featured 115mm insulated roof cladding, 80mm insulated wall cladding, and strategically positioned rooflights for optimal natural light. The building’s design was carefully curated to complement the aesthetics of the existing structure, enhancing the overall ambience of the recreational grounds.

  • Dimensions: Total Width: 8m, Total Length: 21m
  • Height: Eaves Height: 2.6m, Ridge Height: 3.456m
  • Roof Type: Dual Pitched, Roof Pitch: 10°
  • Number of Bays: 4
  • Cladding Color: Juniper Green


The successful completion of the project in 2021 marked a significant milestone for the 1st Henley & Wootton Scout Group. Equipped with a modern, resilient facility, the group is poised to continue its legacy of community engagement and youth development. The collaborative efforts of Midbrook Steel Buildings and the unwavering support of the local community have ensured that the group now has a versatile space to nurture learning, friendship, and adventure for generations to come!
