Multi-level shooting club


Client: Mendip Shooting Club

Location: Wells

Project: New clubhouse, shop and air rifle shooting range

The Project

This was a self-build project for Mendip Shooting Club.

It was a large-scale build (almost 1,200m2) which involved the construction of a new clubhouse, shop and indoor air rifle shooting range.

The Challenge

The owner and managing director of Mendip Shooting Ground, Vernon Hill, was seeking an easy to use construction method as he was planning to self-build the entire structure with his eldest son.

He chose Durisol having seen someone else use it, and been given some leftover Durisol units to try out. He liked the fact that they were easy to use and they could build themselves.

The Outcome

Vernon and his son Alex constructed the entire structure themselves. They used Durisol for all the external and internal walls in the new three-storey building.

The new shooting club comprises an air rifle shooting range in the basement, a shop and clubhouse on the ground floor, and offices and meeting rooms on the first floor.

Vernon continued to run his business alongside the build so the entire project took two years to complete.

Vernon was so pleased with Durisol that he is now intending to use Durisol units to build his new house as soon as the planning application has been approved.

Client Comment

Durisol does everything it says on the tin. It was easy to use and we didn’t have any problems building with it. We actually had fun building with Durisol and really enjoyed the experience.
