Mott MacDonald Expertise Helps YMCA Liverpool

Mott MacDonald’s Marc Nadim is currently working with CRASH using his professional expertise to support a major local project.

The need

CRASH approached Mott MacDonald following a request for help from YMCA Liverpool whose current buildings were fast becoming “not fit for purpose”.

YMCA has identified a new building, a former depository of historical importance dating from c1900, but needed professional advice in terms of survey, planning and advice before they went ahead with leasing or buying the four storey property.

“At this stage we need a feasibility study conducted on the building we are hoping to occupy,” explains a spokesperson for YMCA Liverpool.

“We are pursuing considerable funding options regarding the purchase and renovation work, but to help this process we need professional help assessing the property.”

The solution

This is where Marc’s professional expertise is proving invaluable in these initial stages.

How patrons will help

When the project gets underway, CRASH will continue to add value through our Patron companies like Mott MacDonald in terms of sharing skills and sourcing building materials.

The social impact

It is hoped that the new hostel will accommodate up to 40 people at any one time. People remain there for an average for 4-6 months which means the YMCA envisage supporting a minimum of 80 people per year.

This is calculated through the amalgamation of two properties we currently rent and operate in Liverpool of 12 beds and 16 beds, plus an additional 10 beds that they anticipate they need due to increasing demand.
