The Daniel Connal Partnership is delighted to be working with YMCA Norfolk to re-develop the Jubilee Centre to create a sustainable community hub for the local area. We are providing Quantity Surveying and Project Management services on the project.
Located within the Mile Cross Ward in Norwich, which is ranked in the most deprived 10% of areas nationally, the centre will aim to address the community’s demand for services and will operate for its long-term benefit.
The £2m refurbishment, designed by award winning LSI Architects, will include a nursery, café, supervised contact centre and office space. The YMCA Norfolk team will also move from their current location to the centre,.
Robert Dale, Senior Partner, at Daniel Connal Partnership said: “We are thrilled to be involved in this exciting community project.
“To be part of rejuvenating this building, bringing it back into community use is fantastic. It will be a real asset for local residents.”
The centre has sat dormant since 2015, when it was purchased by the Lind Trust, and has been subject to vandalism and fallen into some disrepair.
Tim Sweeting, YMCA Norfolk chief executive, said: “This high-quality development offers a range of services that will enable us to bring local people together and develop more opportunities for them to fulfil their potential.
“As an organisation founded in Norfolk in 1856, we are committed to strengthening communities over the long-term and believe that the provision of education, employment, positive activities and leisure space will really make a difference.”
With planning permission now granted, Work on site is planned to start in the New Year, with planned completion in 2020.
