WCN Editorial Team 9 Jul 2021 EUROPE BUILDINGS

UK-based construction firm Ardmore has secured a contract worth £100m from Kidbrooke Partnership to deliver the first phase of Kidbrooke Square in Greenwich, London.

Kidbrooke Partnership is a joint venture between Transport for London (TfL) and Housing Association Notting Hill Genesis.

Designed by Glenn Howells Architects, the project will deliver 619 new homes that include 157 shared ownership, 310 private homes, and 152 affordable rent.

It will also include new commercial facilities, retail and office space, new public spaces as well as improved public transport, pedestrian and cycle routes.

The scope of work under the contract for the first phase will involve construction of 413 homes for private sale, shared ownership and affordable rent within six new blocks.

It also includes an energy centre around Kidbrooke Station, a new public square and an improved transport hub connecting the station and local bus services.

Ardmore Director James Byrne said: “This is a complex project, and we have had to call on all of our skills and experience of delivering major schemes on logistically constrained sites, next to railways and local residents, to develop a practical well-considered approach to delivery.”

Works at the project site commenced last year, however, they were stopped at the end of March with the primary lockdown announced in the country.

Demolition contractor John F Hunt resumed works on the Kidbrooke Square in June last year to prepare the site ready for development.

Transport for London manager Emma Hatch was quoted saying: “With enabling works on site close to completion, we’re excited to be starting the first phase of the main construction, working with Notting Hill Genesis and Ardmore, to deliver hundreds of new affordable homes.

“Our scheme will also create new and improved amenities for the community alongside new commercial and retail spaces, supporting the local economy while also generating vital revenue to reinvest into the transport network.”
