HA Marks appointed design and build contractor on key Lottery funded project

RoundhouseAs a well-established and much-loved provider of community services in Islington, the Highbury Roundhouse is a charitable trust who required a new building to bring together on one site the range of services they provide to the local community.


Until 2013 the Roundhouse operated from a former bottle works building on the same site, but this was condemned and demolished with the group's activities being dispersed to several centres in the borough. The new centre will once again unite all the Highbury Roundhouses’ functions in one unique, new-build, multi-purpose building. 


A Culinary Contribution by H A Marks to a very worth cause

H A Marks 'Mud Kitchen'Having been approached by a fund raiser for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity on behalf of their friend, who is being treated at the famous hospital, we were happy to donate to a recent fund raising ball held in aid of the charity.


H A Marks designed and one of our tradesmen crafted a unique and one off purpose made 'mud kitchen'. A mud kitchen is an outdoor station for young children between the ages of 1-8 years old to be creative and to promote exploratory play.


The completed 'Mud Kitchen' was offered as a lot in the auction at the ball and contributed to the overall total of £25,000 raised during the night.
