We’re delighted when we receive commendations and praise from the partners and organisations that we work alongside. Here are a few good things that people have to say who work with us.
“It was a special moment last year when the Poplar Baths came back into use after 30 years. The community gained back a first class swimming pool and sports facility. Being recognised for its quality design and build is a proud moment for the council…The refurbishments were led by the council and involved many partners including close liaison with Historic England, development partners Guildmore and Architects Pringle Richards Sharratt. The project succeeded in transforming the 1930s Grade II listed building into a striking London landmark and destination.” Mayor of Tower Hamlets, John Bigg
“Thanks to such a fantastic project, people will now be able to enjoy its facilities as well as appreciate the history and value of such a magnificent building.” Claire Brady of Historic England
“It was an honour to attend the topping out ceremony at Rye Lane. These new shared ownership flats will help many families, who would not have been able to afford a home outright, get on the property ladder. This new building at rye Lane is an exciting part of Peckham’s redevelopment, close to the heart of our vibrant town centre” Mayor of Southwark Councillor Kath Whittam
‘We are proud to have been involved in the rebirth of this wonderful building that can enhance a sense of civic pride in Poplar. With its colourful Art Deco entrance lobby, astonishing main hall, new pools and café we believe the centre makes a much needed contribution to the local community as a whole’
Malcolm McGregor, Director at Pringle Richards Sharratt Architects
“This project offers a huge range of benefits to the community. The youth centre at Dame Colet is being recommissioned as a state-of-the-art facility for our young people and, with 100 affordable homes on the way as well, there’s a lot to celebrate.” Brenda Daley, Chairman of Ocean Estate Residents Association
