As part of a community festival to celebrate Watford Community Housing Trust’s 10th anniversary on Saturday 9th September, LIFE Build’s Mike Wilde, Dean Shipp and Tim Sharp successfully completed abseiling 170ft down the side of the tallest building in Watford. 

This event raised over £10,000 for the Peace Hospice Care which is amazing! These funds go towards helping the Hospice raise the £5.3 million needed each year to provide their services for local people with a life limiting illness and their loved ones.

In Completed Projects by lisa / January 10, 2017 / 0 Comments

LIFE Build Solutions recently completed a new junior school in Northwood, Middlesex.

The project includes large and light classrooms, a hall, a state-of-the-art discovery centre, as well as facilities for music, art, design and technology, science and drama.

The building was designed to be as energy efficient and as ecologically sustainable as possible, including solar panels and ‘living roofs’.

The site also encourages biodiversity with a selection of plants and trees to draw in birds, spiders, bees and other insects.

Headmistress of the school, Dr Mary Short, said: “The new junior school is a beautiful new addition to St Helen’s and provides a wonderful and modern environment which will promote exciting learning for keen young minds”.

Aerial and ground footage was taken during the construction, showing Little St Helen’s, Junior School and Senior School.
