The Foundry, Social Justice Centre
The Foundry, Social Justice Centre is a new block which houses gallery-accessed office space against the street, while framing a top-lit atrium against the back wall of the old building. Artelia provided a multitude of differing services to help bring the project in on time and on budget, including, cost management, employer’s agent and project safety.
