Croydon Councilís development company, Brick by Brick, has appointed VINCI Construction UK to complete the refurbishment of Fairfield Halls as part of its £30m transformation into a state of the art performance venue.
Over the past 10 months, extensive work has taken place behind the hoardings, including detailed surveys, ground investigations, asbestos removal and the stripping of loose fixtures and fittings such as flooring, ceilings and soft furnishings.
With these enabling works now entering the final stages, Fairfield Halls is ready for its redesign. VINCI Construction UK will start on site this month, remaining until the venue reopens at the end of 2018.
The complete refurbishment of Fairfield Halls is the first stage of an ambitious regeneration of the Fairfield area, which will revitalise and reconnect this part of East Croydon with the rest of the town centre.
