Sometimes even smaller jobs require careful management, and that was the case when the local youth centre was seeking to refurbish and upgrade its kitchen. We were brought in to provide designs and a specification for bringing the kitchen up to current Building Regulation standards; part of this involved installing a new fire shutter, and also the complete removal and safe disposal of an asbestos Artex ceiling.
For the youth centre trustees, it was important to keep disruption to a minimum so that regular hirers could continue to use the centre. Careful management of the contractors working on site to carry out the building improvement and kitchen installation works was key, and any issues or questions were swiftly dealt with.
Funded by a grant from the Aylesbury Vale District Council New Homes Bonus, the youth centre’s kitchen is now fully operational again. Feedback so far from hirers and organisers has been very positive.
