The Children in Need project, is by far the largest challenge that Big Build presenter Nick Knowles and his team have tackled and took nine days to complete.  The end result culminated in an exciting unveiling to youngsters on the tenth day. A project of this nature would have normally taken between six and nine months to complete with an estimated value of approximately £1million.

The DIY SOS: The Big Build team was given the challenge of completing it in only ten days.  The whole project was made possible by support from local tradesmen and companies, including Silverdell UK.

Silverdell UK Regional Director Wayne Farmer said: “We were approached by the BBC to carry out some asbestos removal works within the existing building to make a particular area safe and allow the planned build to take place.  We always support Children in Need and so didn’t hesitate to send a team of asbestos removal operatives and managers to the site to do the removal works.”

He went on to say “The Norris Green Youth Centre was in a dilapidated state and a much needed facility within a very deprived part of Liverpool.  The centre offers hope and inspiration to young people and helps them to gain positive life experiences, develop skills and competencies for future life.  Silverdell is proud to be part of such a heart-warming project.”
