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.
