Barking & Dagenham Youth Zone’s grand opening

16/01/18

Piperhill Construction is proud to announce that work is now underway on our new project in Barking and Dagenham for Onside Youth Zone.

Opening in 2019, this will be OnSide’s first Youth Zone in London. The £6million centre will include an array of world-class facilities and activities from sports in the four-court sports hall, martial arts room and 3G kick pitch; to art, drama, music, cooking and enterprise and employability opportunities. The Youth Zone will be used by the borough’s young people aged 8 – 19, and up to 25 for those with disabilities and will provide a safe environment where young people can come and enjoy themselves and will enable young people to raise their aspirations and confidence to create a happier and healthier generation.

Attendees at the ground-breaking on Parsloes Park in Becontree included The Youth Zone’s Chairman Charles Midenhall along with Barking and Dagenham Council leader Darren Rodwell. We also welcomed West Ham United FC captain Mark Noble for the celebration and the cutting of the first sod.

West Ham Captain Noble, who grew up and still lives in the area, was thrilled to be part of the ceremony and knows more than most the importance of youngsters getting the opportunity to fulfil their dreams.

Noble said: This is a big day for Barking and Dagenham. You can see from the youngsters who attended the excitement they are getting from a new Youth Zone being built in the Borough’.

‘Dreams can certainly become a reality and a development like this can only improve their chances of achieving their goals’.

 

Piperhill Construction has completed a wide array of projects similar to The Youth Zone. We currently have two similar projects underway in Northern Ireland, one of which is a new Develop and Construct Primary School on a green field site, including all utilities, services, groundwork’s and landscaping for ‘Our Lady of Fatima’ Primary School, L’Derry and a new 10 class base extension, sports facility and refurbishment at the existing Broadbridge Primary School, L’Derry.

We pride ourselves in being qualified and experienced to undertake all aspects of work; from new build, private and commercial, refurbishment, through to fully integrated services and first class designer finishes. Whether working within design and build or traditional contracts, our unfailing aim is to satisfy all of our clients and their consultants requirements and to produce the highest quality finished project.
