New Fet-Lor building completed in North Edinburgh

Hardies Property & Construction Consultants have been instrumental in helping Fet-Lor Youth Club construct their new building to provide a multi-purpose facility for generations to come in Scotland’s Capital.

Hardies, who have their Head Office in Edinburgh along with thirteen other offices across Scotland, have fulfilled the roles of Project Management, Quantity Surveying and Principal Designer Services at the new Fet-Lor Youth Club facility at Crewe Road South.

Working over an eight month time period, during which the original building was demolished and construction of the new build facility was completed, Hardies had initially helped FetLor with the brief and design for the building before vital fundraising commenced to bring the project to fruition.

Fet-Lor is Scotland’s oldest Youth Club, and has been providing safe haven for local children for nearly a century. Today the club caters for 8 to 18 year olds.

Hardies Project Manager, Debi Stark, who worked closely with Fet-Lor team said : “We were delighted to be able to assist FetLor to create a fantastic new facility which is fit for purpose, will exceed all expectations and will be such an asset for years to come. As ever it was a challenge to keep the project team on track to deliver on time and on budget. Now we are all looking forward to the club moving back in and enjoying the facilities. It is such an improvement on the previous building.”

“It really was a pleasure working with Fet-Lor and we wish them every success in the future,“ she added.

Hardies Edinburgh office has recently submitted a proposal fee for another Edinburgh Youth Club it hopes to work with in the near future – North Merchiston Youth Club and Community Centre. Hardies, who are Scotland’s largest multi discipline surveying firm, would be looking to provide the same services as for Fet-Lor – QS, Project Management and Principal Designer Services.
