CROYDON creation of storage facility for Legacy Youth Zone

We were delighted to be able to help Legacy Croydon Youth Zone with a small project in their sports hall. Legacy is Croydon’s own purpose built young peoples centre and part of the national OnSide organisation.

We have always been great advocates of the centre and have has a family supported its endeavours.

The project was to expand the current small storage area in the sports hall by utilising the empty space above the existing storeroom and between the perimeter wall and wall of the sports halls.

After liaising with Legacy staff we recommended amending the proposed layout to be able to create a more versatile space suitable for facilities management staff to have a secure storeroom, work space, and direct access for larger sports equipment to be taken outside.

Although a small project, we were required to offer our full range of services.

  • Design and provision of drawings
  • Create an opening in the plasterboard ceiling
  • Install a new timber floor
  • Construct a new 1st floor storage area
  • Adapt and amend the current fire detection system
  • Re-wire as required and install new lights
  • Install a new timber staircase

As Covid-19 measures restricted full use of the sports hall we were able to segregate and protect the hall so that staff and young people could continue to utilise the space without disruption from us.
