Maidstone - Community Skills Centre
Maidstone, Kent
value: £1 million
status: Complete
client: KCC

This project involves transforming an underused community hall by adding front and side extensions and introducing a new mezzanine floor to provide a new Vocational Centre, pre-school for 35 children, sports centre and youth club.

Facilities include a cafe, teaching kitchen, workshops for motorcycle engineering and painting & decorating, sports hall and ICT classrooms.  The new centre is a vital hub for the community.

Construction was on a tight budget and timescale, with the pre-school built and operational within just 12 weeks.
