Demolition of existing 3 storey accommodation building together with offshoots of main arc building, existing offices and gym to the rear of the site. New build of 3 storey castle accommodation building to replace existing and refurbish listed arc building to the front.

The project was value engineered to consider tight budgeting restraints. Points attained to achieve BREEAM Excellent and all timber products within the scheme were sourced from sustainable sources and are FSC/PEFC certified.

The scheme has been awarded a “Community Recognition” Award in the 2012 Civic Trust Awards. 

“To state the matter plainly, every part of the B&K team I have worked with has been excellent. The team on site who have delivered a quality job combining hard work and a helpful professional attitude to staff and residents alike. This should also include the team from Haywards who have also been excellent. Richard and Nick have been a constant source of reassurance and support, providing constructive solutions throughout. Kevin and Adrian have also at important times in the process provided me with confidence that I was working with people I could trust. In conclusion ... despite the uncertainties of the current financial outlook, it is very pleasing to know that in Crewe, for the long term, there is now established a great asset for the housing, support and positive engagement of young people experiencing the challenge of homelessness. Thank you for B&K's considerable contribution to achieving that.”
