Concrete repair…before!

Our thanks to Gavin Wilkinson from Sleater & Watson for sending in these before and after photographs.

Sleater & Watson are providing the structural and civil engineering services for the Jubilee House project and Gavin is the engineer working on the day-to-day running of the project.

The remedial repairs to the existing concrete frame which is to be retained have been completed by Ram Services Limited prior to the demolition works commencing. These repairs will extend the design life of the building to accommodate the proposed re-development.  Gavin

S106 Agreement…signed!!

On the 2nd August 2013 we received exciting news from Napthens Solicitors advising that the S106 Agreement had been signed. This meant that the issue planning consent was imminent. (Since the FBC Committee approval on 22nd May 2013 the Solicitors had been working together on the S106 terms).

Such a relief to hear this news!!

Party Night at the Lytham Proms!

10. 80s Prom Night and Jubilee House 2.8.13

Jubilee House photo – from the Lytham Proms

I was in Lytham at the time having tea before going to the 80s night at Lytham Proms, on Lytham Green overlooked by Jubilee House.  It was great to glance Jubilee House from the Lytham Proms knowing that the planning permission was imminent and that the incongruous 1960s building that was Birkenhead House would soon rise majestically as Danbro’s new HQ Jubilee House and with apartments – a superb design that Lytham will be proud of.  It was great to work with the expert Design Team and also with Helen and Damian Broughton who created Danbro who are truly inspirational for what they have achieved.
