Delivering a state of the art net-zero carbon retirement living village
44 affordable homes for Sanctuary Housing in the heart of east London
One of UK's best performers at Considerate Constructors’ Scheme
Part of over 1,000 homes being delivered around Canning Town
Underlines skills for brownfield and tight urban sites
Quayside House is an example of how our residential construction team deliver projects in busy urban areas on confined sites. On this occasion, in the heart of Canning Town, close to another large development, Aberfeldy Village.
Working with Sanctuary, we have created homes for affordable rent for local people alongside public realm space. Our homes also come with new parking, recreational space and footpaths, cycle stores and general landscaping. All this creates a popular new living environment close to Canning Town tube station that is revitalising this part of east London.
Our team at Quayside made the headlines (below) for coming second out of 8,000 projects for their considerate behavior towards their neighbors. The respected CCS awards recognise how projects engage with communities, so coming second is not bad! See how we did this year.
As ‘Most Considerate Site Runner Up’, this included scoring 10/10 score for ‘Valuing its workforce’. Our health and safety innovations included helmets with added protection against skin cancer and soft wood chippings on the site ground to mitigate against sprains and falls.
Now complete, Quayside provides 19 homes at affordable rent, which includes four with wheelchair access situated on the ground floor. It also has four duplex flats with ground and first floor accommodation, and a further 11 rented homes with 2-3 beds.
Tenures for remaining homes are intermediate shared ownership, with our team combining their know-how of urban working with high quality finishes.
Part of our regular service for community integration included a regular barbeque, school artwork hoarding competition and our trainees providing a new community garden at St Luke's Centre (below), which has left a lasting legacy for Tarling Road.
