Rydon has completed a fit out project for a new coffee bar social enterprise to help provide training and employment opportunities for local people at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital redevelopment project.

‘Haggerston Perk’ will operate from a ground floor level commercial unit within the scheme and will be run by The Tower Project, a registered charity and a leading East London provider of support services to people who have a physical disability or health related issues.

The success of the scheme is with thanks to Capex Workspace Interiors, Family Mosaic and Watkins who have helped Rydon deliver the fit out of the café to a high standard as the new trainees start trading and they make the first step into sustainable employment.

The new venture is well located within the new development which is providing 188 new homes for Londoners following the scheme’s approval by the Mayor of London. It is also positioned on one of the main arterial cycle routes into the City on Goldsmiths Row and is adjacent to Haggerston Park, home to Hackney City Farm and a number of popular recreational facilities.
