East Anglian Galvanizing supports Forest YMCA’s mYPad scheme

East Anglian Galvanizing galvanised 1.9 tonnes of steel for the creation of staircases and balconies used to access accommodation as part of the Forest YMCA’s mYPad scheme in Walthamstow, East London.

  • plant galvanise steel used to create access stairways and walkways for a series of new low-rent units
  • part of the initiative to convert shipping containers into affordable living spaces
  • includes kitchen, bathroom and living area

With the containers stacked on two levels to utilise space, the staircase offers safe and convenient access to the adjoining top-level accommodation.

Denise Cathrall, Company Secretary at BRIPAT Engineering: “It was a pleasure to be involved in the mYPad scheme and feedback so far has been fantastic with the living spaces proving so popular another two have been commissioned for the area, so we look forward to providing further support in the future. Galvanizing the steel was a specific request by the contractor, and will ensure the stairways and balconies are protected against rust and corrosion, and look aesthetically pleasing for residents for years to come.”

Selwyn Parrish, Commercial Manager at East Anglian Galvanizing: “It was fantastic to partner with Bripat on this particular project and be involved in such an innovative scheme which is set to provide affordable accommodation to so many young people.”
