Yorkon awarded £2.8m contract for new adult education centre

Award-winning off-site construction specialists and Portakabin subsidiary, Yorkon, is to build a new £2.8m adult education centre for Lewisham Council.

Due for completion in Spring 2006, the new purpose-designed centre at Granville Park will regenerate a brownfield site and provide a range of facilities for the local community including a café, food studies laboratory, workrooms for art, woodwork, upholstery and metalwork, an IT suite, general classrooms, and offices. The building will also have a crèche and an outdoor play area for children.

Yorkon will manufacture the building off-site and will crane 39 steel-framed modules into position in less than a week ready for fitting out, significantly reducing the programme time. Yorkon’s work also includes demolition of several disused buildings on the site and completion of landscaping and car parking.
