Works have commenced to build a community hub, café and sports facility, alongside 23 homes for vulnerable young people for YMCA Somerset Coast in Highbridge, Somerset.

The £3.1 million scheme is set to revitalise the hotel and land that was ravaged by fires in 2008 and 2011, leaving behind only the property’s Grade-II-listed frontage.

Randall Simmonds are working for YMCA Somerset Coast alongside John Perkins Construction  and BBA Architects.
