The Foundry, London
The Social Justice and Human Rights Centre Company Ltd was established in May 2011 by the Trust for London, Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, The Barrow Cadbury Trust, LankellyChase Foundation and The Ethical Property Company. This followed an extensive piece of market research with social justice and human rights organisations to identify the need for the scheme and to develop a building brief.
Ethical Property was appointed to manage the development of the project from conception to opening, and after completing a detailed property search the company purchased 142 Vauxhall Street (now formally 17-19 Oval Way), London, in March 2012. The property is a large Edwardian industrial building situated between the Oval and Vauxhall tube stations in London. Plans for refurbishment of the existing building and creation of a substantial modern extension were developed, and full planning permission was granted in early 2013.
Building work has commenced on-site and the building will be open in September 2014. The Foundry will then be managed, under contract, by Ethical Property on behalf of the Company.
The scheme will include 2,900m²
of office space with communal facilities, as well as a conference hall, meeting rooms and exhibition space which can be booked by both voluntary and private sector organisations with discounted rates available to registered charities, CIC’s, and social enterprises.
