This hostel for homeless men included a new extension and restoration of a derelict protected structure. The project was completed on a very confined site, where the protected structure was retained and fully refurbished as part of the development. F&M Whelan Engineering Ltd manufactured and fitted 40 tonnes of structural steel work for the existing house and new build as well as metal decking, purlins and purlin brackets.
