Park East New Build Estate Regeneration
Park East is providing 320 new homes within 5 blocks varying in height from 3 to 8 storeys.
Location: Erith, Bexley, London
Client: Wates / Orbit Housing Association
Project Value: £96.4M
Specialisation: Estate regeneration
We took on this regeneration project at the start of Stage 4, and led the design team to achieve the detailed design and construction of the regeneration of what was a run-down estate. The new development provides 32O new homes in 5-blocks, ranging from 3 to 8-storeys in height, and 80% of these homes will be for London Living rent, London Affordable rent or shared ownership. The need to redevelop the estate was an opportunity to create a more community-focussed layout and warmer homes.
We worked collaboratively with Wates to develop the project designs through workshops and design reviews. We developed federated models to ensure our designs were coordinated with the engineers, and developed a Hazard Identifiers script within the BIM software Revit, which we use to represent the risk register in 3D.
In line with our commitment to support the communities in which we work, we ran a 3-day workshop with construction students at London South East Colleges. Having explained how balconies fit into the construction, students developed designs for perforated balconies and visited the factory where they are made.
