Did you know that the main building will be 100 years old in 2028?

Since 1928 the premises of what we now know as ELCAP have been continually developed and as we are now coming close to running out of space the decision has been made to investigate the possibility of creating a 3rd building which will be used to bring our other two buildings into one, large building.

This will be achieved by creating a new main entrance, and the relocation of reception, kitchen and IT suite with a new multi-purpose area overlooking the garden and local opinion seems to suggest that this space could be used as a Coffee Shop amongst other things.

As things develop we will keep you posted but at the moment as part of our investigations we have two projects on the go:

  1. A feasibility study to be conducted into the running of a coffee shop.
  2. A pre-planning application has been submitted to gauge the advice of the local planning depertment at Sunderland City Council and their advice is being used to prepare a full planning application. These are the initial architects drawing that were used for pre-planning advice:
