YMCA, Hertfordshire

June 17, 2014
Ian Gunter and his team have been appointed to help the YMCA transform themselves.

YMCA Central Herts and Watford YMCA are merging. This merger of two YMCAs – successful in offering excellent services to the communities they support – enables them to pool their expertise and expand their programmes to reach even more people who need their help. It allows them to bid for larger contracts and gives them an even stronger voice to advocate for vulnerable groups – especially young people. Together they become one of the largest charities in Hertfordshire, serving 8 of the 10 districts in Hertfordshire – which is great news for local people!

As part of the planned transformation, Sian, Yagmur and Ian have been commissioned to develop proposals for the refurbishment of the Front of House areas in their Watford & District site.



Mark Mallindine and his team have recently obtained Full Planning Permission to extend and refurbish this 17th century, grade II listed, 7 bedroom former farmhouse, on the edge of Canterbury.

Mark & Diego, worked with Planning Consultants ~ Fuller and Long  and Structural Engineers ~ Stand.

The property is set in nearly 3 1/2 acres of land. The refurbishment will completely remodel the upper floors of the main house, converting the attic into 2 additional large bedroom suites.  It will connect most of the outbuildings and stable block to the main house, and  create a new gym, TV / play rooms and a 4 car garage.
