Cullompton – Community Centre

Simon Friend acted as Project Manager for St Andrew’s Church Cullompton in their desire to develop a new Community Centre replacing outdated church halls.

Simon oversaw the entire process from initial feasibility, appointment of architect and design team, sustainability & green technology, planning application & approval, contract tender stage, appointment of main contractor and all details to do with the provision of this exciting new facility for Cullompton.

In addition, Simon was the lead role in applying for grants to various trusts and funding bodies and amongst others, successfully obtained £700,000 from European Union RDPE CASE fund – the largest grant given by far to a community group for such a project.
