Kettering General Hospital is currently heading up a community project called “Revive the Recreation Hall Appeal”, to refurbish their local community hall. Cubex Contracts were contacted last year by Shirley Newman (head of the fundraising team), because she knows Andy via a family member. Shirley was looking for local businesses to volunteer their skills and anything else they could offer to help up date the hall and get it back to being at the heart of community life.

What did we do?

The two areas we were very clearly able to contribute to were the ceilings and walls. We agreed to do the work at cost to help the appeal save money, and we also project managed our teams for free as it was a charity.

Our ceiling team fitted new suspended ceilings throughout with the provision of cabling for stage lighting and other equipment. When it came to the walls we suggested fitting insulated plasterboard to cover the brick walls to keep the heat in, provide soundproofing and improve acoustics too.

Our part of the project was completed in November 2015, over a period of 4 weeks – where we worked around the other trades and professional teams, leaving the site so electricians and plumbers for example, could do a first fix – and then returning again to finish our part of the work.

When we had finished our work on the project the hall looked cosier, more modern and ready for the next helpers of the project to come in and do their part.
