Barking and Dagenham Council have thanked Cosmur for its ongoing support in providing training and work experience opportunities for locals schools and colleges through the East London Solutions Framework. “It is important to us young people recognise the career potential of the construction industry and we will provide a safe, supported learning environment that will help encourage construction as a career choice.”
As part of the summer works programme Cosmur carried out the internal and external refurbishment of Dudin Brown and Bay House building at the School of Art Campus in Hampstead, for King’s College London. The building was let to summer students throughout the 10 week contract period. This required careful planning and interfacing to ensure minimum disruption to the occupants, local residents and visitors to the Hampstead Cemetery, which was in close proximity to the project.
Elm Tree Road adjoins Lord’s cricket ground and is situated within the St. John’s Wood Conservation Area. This project entailed the demolition of a large two storey detached property to provide a contemporary high specification 5 bedroom family home, whilst retaining some of the characteristics of the original building.
‘I have had an amazing experience in my past 3 years at the University of Westminster and I can only attribute my success and progression through my studies as a result of Cosmur. The full assistance towards living costs and tuition fees has given me the freedom to explore my chosen career path without being burdened by loans. In addition, the morale support I have received from Cosmur has been invaluable. There are wonderful and friendly people at Cosmur and I cannot thank them all enough.
