DIY SOS: Grenfell

DIY SOS and BBC Big Build for The Community Space & Dale Youth Boxing Academy is a charity and community project that Conisbee have provided design services for and are proud to be involved with.

Following the tragic events in June last year, a team was formed to help DIY SOS with the design and construction of a new boxing gym and community hub under the Westway in Kensington with all services and materials for the project being donated by willing companies from London and around the UK

Featherstone & Young are the architects behind the new gym with Hoare Lee and Galliard Homes committing their expertise and services. BandW Engineers have provided the steel frame fabrication for the project working with Modebest for the foundations and ground work.

This exceptional project received full planning at the beginning of March, under the proviso that the community affected by the tragedy remain involved throughout.  With the help of DIY SOS and HRH The Duke of Cambridge, who leant a royal hand, it is set to open at the end of May.

Conisbee team members where on site with the DIY SOS film crew and Prince William on Tuesday to see how things were coming along.
