The redeveloped ground floor building for Christian Family Concern in Croydon was handed over to our client last week. The redevelopment provides additional self-contained bedsit accommodation for vulnerable families.
The charity has a long history of supporting vulnerable families. It works with all sections of the local multicultural community, reaching out to the more disadvantaged and those needing additional support. As they celebrate their 125th anniversary this year, it is a sad reflection of modern life that the objectives for which the charity was founded, namely “the relief …. of children, young persons and pregnant women in need of care and protection” are still as necessary today as they were in 1893. Christian Family Concern aims to provide safe, secure, comfortable supported accommodation where young first-time mothers can develop their confidence and skills in parenting and independent living.
Hills successfully acted as Project Manager, Quantity Surveyor and Principal Designer on the redevelopment prompting Christian Family Concern to say "We have appreciated the promptness with which your firm has consistently dealt with our various requests and inquiries. It has been pleasing to note how well the liaison between our Finance Officer and Hills has worked at a day-to-day level".
