It has been a long and at times arduous journey, the community has shown tremendous resolve and patience, you may recall construction work commenced on the building of the new centre in August 2017 and we reoccupied part of the building within 8 months in May 2018. The first floor prayer halls were opened in Ramadan 2019.
As a community, over the course of nearly 10 years, we have raised circa £6.44million, Allahamdu’Lillah and we now need to raise the remaining £1.75million to complete the fitting of the upper 3 floors.
The construction has been overseen and managed by the contractors with great care and probity. This is an ambitious project and many of us will never have an opportunity such as this in our lifetimes. The opportunity to build a Masjid and take part in the construction of the House of Allah (swt), an institution which will serve the community eternally. For us it will become a Sadiqah Jariyah, Insha’Allah, benefitting us long after we have departed. A project with such consequence should be given the utmost focus and the respect it deserves.
The construction program is described as 3 parts, though the construction work has where possible been delivered in continuous phases.
Phase 1: This allowed the occupation of the building in month 8 of the construction programme, May 2018. Temporary facilities were opened at ground floor level for both male and female visitors. These facilities were able to accommodate around 600-700 people and Jummah prayers reconvened on site. £3.7m Raised. PHASE COMPLETE
Phase 2: This allowed for the building to be fully constructed (excluding the residential top floor). The ground and first floors were completely fitted out with only the upper floors remaining. The cost of this phase was £2.94M. PHASE COMPLETE
Phase 3: This involves the fit out of the remaining floors, the cost of this phase is £1.75M.
