YMCA New Campus 1 900x600

Following a complex legal agreement, the Milton Keynes YMCA was finally given the green light to proceed with a major redevelopment of their existing building in the City Centre, designed by architects Pick Everard.

The charity, which has been working in Milton Keynes since 1980 will create 199 new homes for young people in need of housing. In addition to the homes, the scheme will also comprise shops, a café, meeting rooms, training rooms and a nursery.

T&T Facades has been awarded the contract for the design, supply and installation of the full façade package on the new 8 storey building from Tier 1 contractor Bowmer & Kirkland which will include insulated render, metal cladding and ancillaries.

Simon Green, CEO of YMCA Milton Keynes said “Our new flagship home will help vulnerable young people to become independent. It will also allow us to offer residents advice and workshops on things like career development and health and well-being.”

Joint owner of T&T Facades, Tom Watkins commented “We’re very pleased to be working again with B&K, especially on such an important community-driven project. It’s quite a straight-forward project for us and we plan to deliver the façade within a 15-week programme.”

With the project well underway, T&T Facades plan to start on site at the end of March with the new building set to be to completed and handed over to the charity for use by September 2019.

Final Montage Web

Throughout November, the T&T office looked like the set of a 2nd rate ‘70’s movie starring characters like Ned Flanders and Buffalo Bill! But it was all in a good cause – to support the Movember Foundation, to stop men dying too young.

Team ‘Tash & Tash’ consisting of Dan Jarnak, Jon Cockle, Merv Yeadon, Bill Pearce, Darren Jewell and Mike Stanton all threw themselves into the challenge and by the end of the month were sporting some spectacular hairy lips!

The team raised £590 which will go a long way in helping men’s health and we are all very proud of them.

T&T Facades is delighted to announce being nominated a finalist in the Construction News Specialists Awards 2019 for our work on Cumberland Place – a 12-storey, student accommodation block in Southampton city centre for client Bennett Construction. We’ve been shortlisted in the category of ‘Project of the Year by a Specialist Contractor (subcontract between £1m to £3m).’

T&T Facades tendered for this cladding contract in the wake of the Grenfell disaster and naturally the specification and installation needed to be very high. We also ran this job simultaneously alongside another 12-storey accommodation block in East Street, Southampton making logistical planning very challenging.

Commenting on the award news, Tom Rutter, joint company owner said “Being shortlisted for a Construction News Specialists Award is just amazing. It is testament to the hard work, diligence and commitment of the whole team and we couldn’t be prouder of this achievement”. He added “This is a very high-profile platform with which to promote our services further and we’re excited about the opportunities this could present”.

Representatives of the company have now been invited to present their entry in person to the award judges at Construction News HQ in February, with the winner being announced at a glittering awards ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London on 27th March 2019.

OLDWAY HOUSE SWANSEA Copy 1200x745 (1)

T&T Facades has been awarded a 7500m2 cladding contract with new client WRW Construction. The project comprises the redevelopment of an existing 13-storey Swansea office block into much needed student housing. The existing city centre building will be extended to include the construction of an additional two storeys to the block creating Oldway House, consisting of 556 new en-suite student bedrooms including 12 studio apartments, a management area, show accommodation, common rooms, laundrette and a ground floor retail unit.

T&T Facades will be responsible for the design, supply and installation of the rainscreen cladding package on the scheme, comprising Rockpanel rainscreen and various ancillaries including flashings, cavity barriers and parapet coping.

The site is surrounded by commercial and residential buildings which will be mostly occupied during the construction works. T&T will therefore need to draw upon its extensive experience of delivering city centre projects which includes various hotels and high rise accommodation blocks. Alexandra House which adjoins the site is a live office building that will be occupied for the duration of the project.

Commenting, Tom Rutter, joint company owner said “We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded this project. WRW is a hugely respected and accomplished construction company and the whole team is very excited to be working with them. The Oldway House scheme perfectly suits our skills and experience having successfully delivered three multi-story student accommodation blocks in Southampton City Centre in the last 12 months alone.”

T&T Facades commence on site in November 2018.
