Construction has commenced on the sensitive refurbishment of Worthing Town Hall. The site is located on Chapel Road in Worthing which first opened in 1933, built in a neo-Georgian style by Charles Cowles-Voysey.
The town hall is a Grade II listed building comprising of offices and a Council Chamber. The building is also used as a venue for weddings and ceremonies.
The design conserves the building’s historic features whilst improving facilities for Adur & Worthing employees based in the building. Listed elements such as marble flooring, original columns, wooden panelling and the Committee Room are retained and enhanced with a new historic based interior scheme.

The plans will update the kitchenettes, shower rooms, break-out spaces, and offices in order to provide welcoming visitor experiences and better quality workspace for staff. Work to improve energy performance and thermal efficiency will include upgrading to LED lighting, new double glazing windows on upper floors, and secondary glazing throughout.
Areas such as the first floor Atrium and the Gordon Room will be decluttered and enriched with new carpet, furniture, and a fresh colour scheme, enhancing the building’s character, and creating a bright, spacious environment.Share this
