Cellar Conversion to Grade II Listed Building - Alcohol Rehab Charity

Cellar conversion to create a new commercial Kitchen + shower room + laundry room + upgraded ventilation provision. Complicated planning and conservation requirements as the building is Grade II Listed in a very prominent city centre location. Very complex ventilation extract duct systems that needed to be fire rated + comply with the high standards of Sheffield City Council conservation team.
Worked in collaboration with the construction charity CRASH who helped co-ordinate pro-bono professional expertise, supplied free building materials and awarded cash grants. Also worked in collaboration with local artist Ben Parkin who provided bespoke interior artwork to help improve the mood.
We completed the work free of charge as we support the positive social engagement benefit the project will have on the local community.
Local newspaper the Sheffield Star published an article on the project as they considered it was a story of merit.

'Nathan and his company undertook to work with us at Ben’s Centre; we are a charity for street drinkers in Sheffield. Our building is listed and it is in a conservation area. We needed help to design and build a cellar conversion to provide a kitchen, laundry, shower room and WC’s.

Nathan guided us through the complex regulations, liaised with the council and completed competitive tenders for the builders to obtain prices for the work. He acted as a competent and extremely knowledgeable project manager throughout the entire project. This project was time consuming [18 months + in total] and not without problems. Nathan was patient, helpful and totally professional; we would never have completed the project without his help.

All this work was completed on good will and Nathan’s generosity. Our staff and clients can never thank him enough.'

Sue Smith, Ben's Centre Manager [now retired]
