A bespoke build
Based on the design, a large amount of the joinery needed to be manufactured and bespoke. The team attended a follow-up meeting with The Prince’s Trust in Birmingham to view one of the charity’s similar bases and took their chosen manufactured joiner with them to provide additional reassurance to the charity that a similar outcome could be achieved in Manchester.
This included making a bespoke kitchen, seating, curved glazed screens, storage cupboards, wall units and first-floor tea points.
Succesfully avoiding disruption
Noise and dust were kept to a minimum and the team installed a temporary staircase to gain access to the first floor until the main one was installed to avoid disruption.
Fortnightly newsletters were issued to key stakeholders to update them on progress. End users were shown how everything works within the building before handover.
A film crew also visited the site during the project to capture progress for The Prince’s Trust internal communication platforms.
