The Cocoon Romford

London Borough of Havering

The Cocoon, Romford, Essex

Project Procurement:
HBS were successful in tendering for the project as main contractor

Scope of works:
Design, Project Management and refurbishment of children’s Support Hub

Project Value:


The Cocoon, one of east London’s only dedicated support hubs for children in care and care leavers, has recently opened in Romford.

The centre provides a safe drop-in space for children and young people living in care or leaving care, where they can meet with key workers and progress with personal development. The Cocoon will enable young people to develop key life skills, get access to training, receive additional education support, learn how to cook and get help with housing and health.

HBS designed, engineered and project managed the build, which included demolition and stripping-out of the existing space, installation of a new kitchen and toilet, partitioning, joinery, flooring, decorations and all mechanical and electrical works.

HBS Project Director Andrew Pratt commented at the launch “We’re very proud to be part of this great new resource for the children in care of Havering, it’s a really positive and exciting development. Our team met the challenge of the tight programme and delivered a genuine, high quality and professional service.”
