Gascoigne East Phase 3

Gascoigne estate regeneration continues as we secure latest phase

As Barking and Dagenham Council continues with its regenerative plans in the east-London borough, we have been awarded a £40 million contract to build Block J of the Gascoigne estate.

The local authority’s regeneration company, Be First, has appointed us to carry out the works as it undertakes a massive redevelopment of the area, which will include the construction of residential housing and communal areas, bidding to deliver stylish, affordable homes and facilities that are environmentally friendly.

Ahead of construction beginning in early 2022, we began demolition of the existing infrastructure in preparation.

Block J will see the delivery of 124 new affordable homes, consisting of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. A communal courtyard will ensure there is a local green space for residents to enjoy and congregate in, while an extensive bicycle parking area will encourage greener transportation in the area.

Block J follows on from our delivery of Gascoigne Phase 2, worth £135 million, which will see 382 new homes delivered, of which 57% will be affordable housing.

Once again, sustainability is at the heart of our efforts, with the homes being the first net zero carbon building to be delivered by Be First, supported by the addition of photovoltaic panels on roof spaces.

We were appointed by Be First to its delivery framework in 2019 to help transform the east side of the 1960s Gascoigne estate into a contemporary, environmentally friendly community.


  • First net zero carbon building to be delivered by Be First.
  • Focus reducing environmental impact.
  • Public areas to create a sense of community
