Senior Architectural Systems has donated a range of aluminium glazing systems for two new community buildings, created as part of the BBC’s DIY SOS Grenfell Special programme.
The popular TV show faced on one of its biggest and most important challenges ever in helping the local West London community affected by the tragic Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017.
Tradespeople nationwide, including Senior’s supply chain partners Soundcraft and CMS, came together to construct two new buildings in merely a few weeks.
As well as the new North Kensington community centre, which will offer crucial facilities for the local groups and residents in the area, the teams have also created a new, modern gym for the Dale Youth Boxing Club.
Senior has donated aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling for the project, with members of Senior’s architectural advisory team also spending several days on site liaising with the project team to guarantee the most appropriate products were used and the installation process ran smoothly.
Will Jones, Senior’s architectural advisor for the London area, commented: “Being part of the larger DIY SOS team has been a very rewarding yet emotional experience.
“The fantastic community spirit there inspired all of us on site and it’s amazing what can be achieved in a very short space of time when everyone pulls together to make it happen.
“We are proud to have been able to play a small part in helping to rebuild these vital facilities and hope that the new buildings will be of huge benefit to all.”
