Construction Industry cooking up a storm in Centre Point’s new kitchen
Jersey Construction Councils charity, the Brick Foundation, chose the Centre Point Trusts La Pouquelaye headquarters as the recipient for their 2017 Construction Week project. The focus was on the buildings old and dilapidated kitchens, which were all in need of an urgent makeover.
An appeal went out to local businesses and first to respond were Normans, Pentagon and Romerils, who all donated a full kitchen each. Following on from this substantial gesture, JE’s Powerhouse donated all the electrical appliances and JEBS carried out the electrical and plumbing installations. Andy Fleet, Bridgewater Project Management, who managed the whole project, said “this has now become the normal for our industry in support of our charity, and when the call goes out, we receive an amazingly generous response.”
“We have delivered a project that would have cost Centre Point in excess of £25,000 without charge, due to the generosity of our members” said Steve Jewell, Brick Foundation Chairman. Steve went on to say “there was a large number of businesses who not only turned up and did the work, but also did this free of charge’
Centre Points Trust’s Chief Executive Officer, Jane Moy said “At the Play Care Centre the focus is on fun, fun and more fun! Whether your child is 4 years old or 14 years old, there is always a huge range of exciting on-site and off-site activities for them to take part in and our kitchens are at the centre of our operation. What Jersey’s construction Industry has done for us is amazing; it will make a real difference to the team here and most importantly, the children”
The following businesses all donated goods and services to the project free of charge. Romerils, Normans, Pentagon, Powerhouse, JEBS, Bridgewater Project Management, Elite Building Services, Nailed-It Carpentry, Easifit & Shane Tanguy.
