Outer North Cultural Hub (Skeoge House)


JPM undertook the internal refurbishment and two separate extensions of Skeoge House Community Centre in the Shantallow Area of Derry City for Leafair Community Association.  This new facility is a modern, accessible and sustainable arts and cultural hub for local residents of all ages. The hub is a base for a range of cultural learning acitiviries.

The extensions were of a blockwork construction with both a hipped and pitched tiled roof.  Large quantities of steel supports were installed due to the nature of building and the new openings formed. A specialist concertina partition was installed to allow the separation of rooms.  A new gas supply was connected and all necessary M&E works were carried out. A new fully fitted kitchen was installed as well as all joinery and decoration works. Externally a new footpath and road were constructed and various aspects of landscaping. This was a city of culture funded project and was completed on time and to the original budget.
