Nottingham’s Emmanuel House floored by our support

A Nottingham centre for homeless and vulnerable adults has been given a much-needed lift, thanks to Metropolitan’s Metworks repairs team.
Emmanuel House receives around 2000 visitors a month, and as a result the busy centre’s flooring was looking tired, tatty and unloved.
As part of Metropolitan’s 2017 charity campaign, in which we’ve adopted four local causes to benefit from our support, the Metworks repairs team got rid of the well-worn vinyl and laid some brand new flooring.
The Metworks team installed the gleaming new blue floor covering in just over a week; taking in the centre’s large common room, stairs and upstairs corridors.
It’s made a huge difference to the Emmanuel House staff, and the many people who use the centre. Emmanuel House’s Chief Executive Denis Tully is thrilled:
“The new floor has transformed what was frankly grotty, into somewhere that communicates quality and value. The Metworks team have done a remarkable job and the finished product is of insurmountable value. It was a pleasure to have them with us.”
Ian Davies, Operations Director for Metworks was glad to help:
“Metworks strives to improve the lives and opportunities of people in the communities we operate. We were very pleased to make a difference at Emmanuel House and were thrilled with the feedback. This demonstrates the great work and added value our in-house repairs team can bring to our customers and communities.”
Emmanuel House is one of four local charities Metropolitan colleagues have chosen to support in 2017. We’re also working with Enfield Food Bank, Clapham Park Food Bank, and Padley Group in Derby.
