Gwynneth Morgan Daycare Centre
CLIENT: London Borough of Wandsworth
DATE: December 2019
The Gwynneth Morgan Day Care Centre project’s aim was to improve the capacity of the building by adding an additional floor to the existing structure, the increased capacity has provided provide much-needed space for the elderly in the community.
The project involved stripping out and demolishing the existing Gwynneth Morgan Day Centre down to ground floor slab level, leaving only the perimeter walls. We installed new piles to support the new steel frame which forms the structure of the new building.
The new day centre is spread across two floors, with the ground floor containing various activity rooms such as a training kitchen, gym, hairdressing room and a large versatile central space. The first floor contains bookable rooms and activity spaces which are available for a variety of uses, along with a recording studio. The building has a terrace area around the perimeter.
The project was delivered on a design and build contract so we worked closely with the client to design the building in line with their expectations whilst maintaining programme. The client was extremely pleased with the end product and it has been very well received by the local community .
The main success in completion of the project was that Quinn London assisted in ensuring a flexible approach to the project, which resulted in excellent quality and fulfilled the building requirements.
Crucially, the building received high praise from the community it was created to serve.
