The BBC has recently broadcasted a special programme as part of their DIY SOS Big Build Series.
“DIY SOS: Grenfell” – The first part of the programme tells the story of the building of the new Dale Youth Boxing Club. The original club had been operating on the first floor of Grenfell Tower since 1999 and helped perfect the talents of Olympic gold medal winner James Degale and world champion George Groves.
The second part tells the story of the new community centre, a brand new build with multi-function spaces, including a large activity space, meeting rooms and a community kitchen.
F.H. Brundle donated perforated metal sheets to Dale Youth Boxing Club and North Kensington community centre as part of the BBC One special programmes. The sheets were added to the underside of the construction’s cladding, acting as pest prevention barriers.
