Brogan Group have supported the construction of a new community and charity building and gardens at Canada Water, London.
Forming part of the wider Canada Water redevelopment by British Land, ‘The Paper Garden’ has been designed for the charity Global Generation and is named after the former printworks the site sits on.
The Brogan Group team, who are working on a nearby project in Canada Water, donated independent scaffold and loading bays to build the façade of a building using 60 per cent reused, retained or reclaimed materials.
225-square-metres of internal space across two floors is now the administrative offices and community space for Global Generation, combined with a 770-square-metre garden which will be used for gardening and cooking programmes.
Alice Hardy, Community Build Manager at Global Generation thanked Brogan Group for their contribution to the project:
“The space is amazing and our young people are already making use of their new classroom. We really valued the work your team did for us on site and they were such a pleasure to work with.”
Founded in 2004, Global Generation is an educational charity, which works together with local children and young people, businesses, residents, and families in parts of London to create healthy, integrated and environmentally responsible communities.
Brogan Group have previously worked on the ‘Floating Garden’ on the Regents Canal with Global Generation, installing handrails on the barge deck for a raised plant bed, providing extra safety for the gardening community project.
