Construction work on the new youth centre in Dagenham has taken a major stop forward following the completion of the building’s framework this week.
Work on the OnSide Youth Zone development, which will include a four-court sports hall, gym, martial arts room and 3G pitch, began in January.
Paul Hogan, commissioning director for culture and recreation at Barking and Dagenham Council, said: “We are thrilled to see the development coming along so quickly and this is another big milestone as we count down until the official opening in Spring 2019.”
The £6.5 million charity project has received funding from the council, the Queen’s Trust and the Jack Petchey foundation.
Youth Zone chief executive Gavin Evans said: “Completion of the steel frame is a significant milestone in the build programme and it is great to see construction taking shape so quickly.”
