We are delighted to have been appointed by Breckland District Council to project manage a scheme which will provide accommodation for vulnerable and homeless people in Thetford and the wider Breckland area.
The project will see a former Day Centre converted to provide high quality short to medium term housing for those in need.
Originally built in the 1960s, Elm Road Day Centre closed in 2012. Unused and subject to periodic vandalism, the building is now in a poor and dilapidated condition.
Breckland District Council plan to reinvigorate the site and use it to help meet the need for short-term housing in the area providing emergency accommodation for individuals and families waiting for permanent homes to become available.
The alteration and conversion project will utilise the existing buildings to provide three self-contained flats and a multi-occupancy house, with individual single/double rooms and a shared communal area created from the existing double height hall. The contractor on the scheme is Cocksedge Builders.
Having already achieved planning permission, work on the community centre refurbishment project is due to start later this month with completion expected by the end of the year.
