Frank Rogers has managed a large school refurbishment programme transforming a former call centre on Bridleway, Bootle, Liverpool, to create a flagship facility for parent led charity, Autism Initiatives.
The single storey, large warehouse unit, owned and managed by North West Housing, has enjoyed a major renovation, introducing a series of small offices and individual areas to accommodate the specific needs of service users who engage with the charity.
Under the scheme, Frank Rogers has installed replacement suspended ceilings, installing air conditioning and new specialist lighting throughout. Two new kitchens have now also been installed which will be utilised by service users and staff for training and food preparation purposes. The huge central room has been re-floored with glass partitions erected, which will form the central activity space with a large adjacent room set out as gym/meditation area.
Autistic service users across Merseyside will attend the centre which will provide expert support, respite, learning, development and education facilities.
Dave Lindeman, Contracts Manager at Frank Rogers said:
“This has been a great project to be involved in. The open plan area has now been transformed from a plain, uninspiring call centre, to a unique and open area, with fit out and design truly fit for purpose for those visiting and using the centre.”
