Quinn London were immensely proud to work on such an important project with Islington Council. We have worked with Islington for a number of years and have completed both new build and refurbishment works and are appointed to Islington’s framework. This scheme involved the conversion of an existing nursing home to create 30 individual rooms and office space for support workers. The project required quick mobilisation and decision making to ensure that the project was delivered on time with a high level of quality.
We took full ownership of the design, working with Islington Council and the consultants and adapted the original building to create a state-of-the-art fit out suitable for all residents and adhering to the latest fire safety regulations. We worked with the end users to fully understand the clients needs, from the building layout through to the finishes, which allowed us to improve the existing building, making it lighter and brighter and safer. We are proud to say that we successfully delivered this project despite working to a very tight timescale.
We transformed a care home into much-needed supported accommodation for 30 people who have been homeless. The accommodation includes a women’s only space and fully accessible accommodation for wheelchair users.
Stacey Street is set in a residential area and local residents were concerned about the buildings change of use. We engaged with residents throughout the project by regular newsletters, drop in centre for residents to discuss any concerns, tour of the completed building and working closely with the councils community safety team.
