Annie Mawson’s Sunbeams Music Trust, (Sunbeams), is a Charity delivering Community Music Therapy to disabled children and adults across Cumbria in the North West of England. Sunbeams provides Music For Life® and Music For Dignity® Projects in outreach venues, at the bespoke Sunbeams Music Centre, (just outside of Penrith), and online. The Charity aims to improve quality of life and self-esteem through the creative power of music.
The project involved the construction of a new build three storey Deployment Centre, complete with associated site works located within the Carlton Hall Police and Fire Service site. The development consisted of a two-storey structure which adjoined a three-storey structure. The latter provided Police operational areas to the ground floor and cadet accommodation and support facilities to the upper floors. The ‘front’ two storey building comprised police operational areas with conference facilities to the second floor.
