The consultancy works with professionals to provide construction solutions to new build and refurbishment projects
Leeds consultancy Projex Building Solutions has completed work on a new residential project for a Sheffield based youth homelessness charity. The work will help Roundabout to provide accommodation for six young people aged between 16 and 18.
Founded in 2009, Projex Building Solutions provides specialist project solutions and a personal, knowledge-based service to property clients across the UK. The consultancy works closely with professionals to provide comprehensive construction solutions as well as adding value to both new build and refurbishment projects.
Projex’s latest project has seen it work with South Yorkshire’s youth homeless charity Roundabout to support young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Roundabout works with more than 250 young people every day, providing shelter, support and life skills to help them gain independence. The new residential project completed by Projex will provide accommodation for six young people aged between 16 and 18 at any one time, who have been part of the care system.
Having cost more than £200,000 to complete, the locale is based in a converted property in Glencoe Road, near Norfolk Park. Projex supervised the conversion and refurbishment, giving its time and expertise for free. The project will now look to provide full 24 hour support to service users, including tools which will help them towards living independent and fulfilling lives.
Joe Unwin, a Projex Building Surveyor, commented, It has been a real pleasure to work alongside such a welcoming team at Roundabout. While the works have been challenging at some points, this has all been possible due to the teamwork ethos of the contractor and consultant team. This will provide much needed housing for the young people of Sheffield.
Unwin added special mention should go to a series of other professional services firms, who also helped with the project. These included contractor Creative Building Projects and consultant team ARP Engineering, Waterman Building Services and PWC Approved Inspectors. Charitable donations were also provided from Heatrae Sadia, Nu-aire and Howdens kitchens.
