Owned by Stockport Council and managed by Stockport Homes. The AG Centre Community Centre had not received significant investment for a prolonged period. It needed refurbishment to ensure it would be a hub for the community. The work required included wholesale internal and external remodelling to incorporate a dedicated space to host a ‘Your Local Pantry’ provision.

DASH architecture provided the architectural services, cost control, contract administration and Principal Designer role through RIBA stages 1-7. Three Sixty then worked with them to develop the project brief through consultation with stakeholders within the various client service areas of Community Buildings, Customer Involvement and Community Engagement. The scope of Three Sixty Construction comprised of external envelope elemental replacement; cladding, windows, roofing and remodelling and refurbishment of the internal areas, including general building and joinery, electrical rewire, heating and plumbing installations and internal wall/floor finishes.

The Result

The result is one of total transformation of the previous building into a modern and eye-catching facility for the surrounding community to enjoy and a commercial asset for the group and Stockport MBC.

The local community, community groups, staff, councillors and partners had the chance to see its new look after its re-launch with The Mayor of Stockport officially opened the centre with a ribbon cutting. Mayor of Stockport, Laura Booth added: “What a fantastic event, celebrating this great community centre, where the local community can get together. Well done to everyone involved. The AGC will also hold a Your Local Pantry, a social supermarket run by Foundations Stockport which Three Sixty donated a huge chunk of its profits too from financial year 19/20.
