The Project Manager at GRAHAM Construction took the opportunity to support and guide the charity 42nd Street through some unexpected renovation challenges.
42nd Street is a young people’s mental health charity based in Ancoats, Manchester, whose services are extensively relied upon within the boroughs of Manchester.
The new premises for The Horsfall were already being renovated when GRAHAM Construction stepped in to offer support – this was great timing as the charity was faced with problems that they had not foreseen or budgeted for.
Therefore our Project Manager offered to be a sounding board and advisor for the final construction issues facing the charity. This included work on an internal wall, which with the help of one of our suppliers – Premier Linings Ltd – was rectified and completed free of charge in time for The Horsfall’s official opening.
Simone Spray, CEO, 42nd Street, said:
“We were delighted when GRAHAM Construction offered to help us with the finishing touches to our new venue for young people. During the renovation of the building, there were a number of unexpected surprises which meant we had very little left in the pot. Right towards the end, we realised that there was a wall that just wasn’t good enough to be left as bare brick. GRAHAM Construction stepped in, gave us some good advice and once we had decided what to do, they even completed the job for us. Ancoats is a hive of development, building activity and change and it’s fantastic that a large company like GRAHAM is willing to listen to and help a locally based charity.”
