Chartered quantity surveyor and project management experts Addison Hunt has been appointed by The Liversage Trust, to provide quantity surveying services for its new office space.
Situated in Alice Street, Derby and part of the Nottingham Road Conservation Area, the project – which has received planning permission – will see existing building transformed into workshops and offices for the charity.
Working alongside architect Matthew Montague Associates, the firm will convert the two-storey building into a brand-new premise for the Liversage Trust as well as courtyard for parking which will enhance the future viability and prosperity of the conservation area.
Founded in 1529 by Robert Liversage, the Trust’s objectives have been to provide relief either generally or individually to Derby residents who are in need, hardship or distress. The Trust currently manages more than 160 almshouses, a 40-bed care home and a small number of other residential and commercial properties, as well as providing grants to assist residents with obtaining essential household items and limited financial support at a time of crisis.
Simon Collin, director of Addison Hunt, said: “The Liversage Trust is an incredible charity and we’re delighted to be assisting them in delivering a new workshop and office space, which will be situated nearby to Liversage Trust almshouses.
“We look forward to welcoming its employees into the new building, not only will they benefit from a modern and spacious facility, but it will make a difference to how they operate and the services they provide across Derby.”
Andy Mellors, general manager at The Liversage Trust, said: “We are extremely pleased to be working with Addison Hunt on this exciting project.
“As Derby’s oldest charity, we are keen to not only preserve the buildings of our past, but to adapt and improve them for the future, so that we can continue to provide our important services to local residents.”
Led by company directors Chris Hunt and Simon Collin, the business was set up by Chris in 2016 and in six years has grown to a team of eight professionals delivering multi-million-pound projects, working with sub-contractors, contractors, and developers.
