Meanwhile Use & Factory Repurposing

Circular Economy principles unlock value

We are supporting the London Borough of Redbridge with their Urban Regeneration Initiative Spark,  specifically to convert the Janice Mews Factory building for use as a Start up Hub. Circular Economy principles are at the heart of the scheme and with inventive design and a close collaboration with the client and contractor we will deliver a scheme that maximises re-use and minimises waste.

A new Cultural Quarter is coming to Ilford town centre which will combine civic, leisure, education and community uses. The area surrounding Redbridge Town Hall and Oakfield Road will be the heart of this change, boosting cultural activity both day and night. Funding has been secured through the Mayor of London’s Good Growth Fund.

“The Spark Ilford” has been developed to kick-start the regeneration of the Cultural Quarter bringing meanwhile projects that will transform three Council assets, initially for a five-year period whilst longer term plans are developed. Mercato Metropolitano, SPACE studios and Things Made Public as part of the Spark Ilford project, will transform the Town Hall car park, the Town Hall building and the Janice Mews building respectively.
