Atkinson refurbishments

Posted on: 10 January 2020

For the last 12 months, staff at the home have been in discussions with various design agencies with a view to refurbishing the home.  After a competitive tendering exercise, a generous DFE grant and engagement with our young people so that some of their ideas could be incorporated, the contract was awarded to Devon Interiors and WMS Building Contractors both of whom have worked closely with staff from    Atkinson to redesign and refurbish the dining room, two lounges, all bedroom corridors and the two life skills lounges/kitchens.  The refurbishment works are currently underway and phase 1 (dining room), is due for completion no later than 20th January.  The entire project is to be completed by 31st March 2020.
