Mary Ward Centre on the AJ100 Shortlist

The shortlist for the AJ100 Community Impact Award 2024 has been announced… and Mary Ward Centre is a contender!

The Mary Ward Centre in Stratford, previously known as Queensway House, has been fully refurbished and extended with two additional storeys to provide a multi-functioning performing arts theatre, café, flexible teaching areas, and community spaces.

Mary Ward is a century old charity providing adult education services to 5,500 students every year. Throughout the design phase, regular engagement was undertaken with staff, students, and the community within a three-mile radius to ensure stakeholder requirements were met and exceeded where possible.

It was a joy working on this project with such a dedicated client, design, and construction team. Winners will be announced on 21st June at the AJ100 awards ceremony and we’re very much looking forward to it.

Huge well done and congratulations to everyone on the AJ100 shortlist.
