As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility strategy, we commit ourselves to supporting a range of causes across our four pillars; Community, Education, Employees and Sustainability, and as such, we are proud to be providing pro-bono Building Control services to a charitable cause in London.

At the end of 2020, the Soup Kitchen London, located at the American International Church on Tottenham Court Road, commissioned the construction of a replacement mental health office. Funded by Derwent London, designed by Architects, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris and constructed by The Thornton Partnership & Stortford Interiors, the office is constructed of three modular boxes tailored to fit under an existing steel stair and provides a compact and well-lit room.

Following initial discussions with AHMM, as we felt this was a worthy charitable cause, we committed to providing Building Regulations services, including technical advice and site visits pro-bono, waiving any fees normally associated with such work.

The project is the first of its kind to offer homeless people free mental health clinic, in addition to food, with the hope that it would support people to find a stable living arrangement.

“We are delighted to provide our support to The Soup Kitchen. It is a very inspiring project which I am sure will provide for many individuals in need of mental health support. The main challenge for this project is the space allocated, as we have to make sure proposed plans of the confined space comply with Building Regulations.”
