Contract Administration / Principal Designer
Projex provided contract administration, cost consultancy and principal designer services on a pro bono basis to help transform a large apartment building on 55 Glencoe Road, Sheffield.
The property has been converted into independent temporary accommodation that will be used to house and support six young people who would otherwise be homeless. LandAid has provided a £100,000 donation towards the works which is part of the RICS ‘Pledge 150’ initiative.
Projex were involved also in approaching a number of suppliers and sub-contractors to get them on board and provide services and facilities to lift the project off the ground. Anne Sanderson of Projex explains:
“We’re delighted to be involved in a project that delivers secure accommodation for some of the most vulnerable young people in our region. It is heartbreaking to hear some of the background stories and frustrating when we know that youth homelessness is a problem that we’re told can be solved. This is an issue close to many peoples’ hearts and the support we’ve had from specialist consultants, sub-contractors and other suppliers has been outstanding. We’re looking forward to getting started on site in March with a view to the first residents taking occupancy early summer.”
Practical completion achieved in November 2020.
