Baitul Futuh Mosque Progressing Well
The Baitul Futuh Mosque is the largest Mosque in western Europe. It is a much loved and highly regarded community facility serving a significant part of the local community as well as other far-reaching members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association.
In 2015 a tragic fire destroyed significant elements of complex, including function halls, offices, residences and other support functions.
Proposals were developed for a replacement building to house the spaces lost during the fire but also to take the opportunity to rationalise and further enhance the building.
This flagship new build project, designed by architects John McAslan + Partners, replaces the fire damaged structure with 5,650m2 of floor space to accommodate the community’s needs for conference, office and residential space, as well as new external front courtyard landscaping, security gatehouse and refurbishment to the existing west wing.
In addition, the architect’s cohesive design provides a prominent and inspiring new entrance which delivers a fitting sense of arrival for visitors. The striking facade includes carved stone, majestic podium columns adorned with Mashrabiyya screens and complimentary textures of limestone cladding.
Our Quantity Surveying team were instrumental in the final insurance settlement and are providing cost consultancy for the project implementation.
The shell and core works undertaken by PDR Construction under a design and build contract are now complete. This scheme continues to progress well on site with the fit out works currently underway and due for completion in mid-2022.
Our team are privileged to be involved in the reconstruction of this prestigious community facility for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association UK.
