Redevelopment of North London Estate

30 August, 2016

BPP is working with TM Architects and Farrer Huxley Associates to develop an Urban Design Strategy for partial-redevelopment of a large North London estate.

The scheme is being developed from a series of earlier feasibility studies that TM Architects were commissioned to provide for Guinness Partnership on infill sites around the estate. The proposal is designed to utilise cross-laminated timber (CLT) construction to save time on site and reduce disruption to remaining residents.

The Urban Design Strategy will include developing a series of new streets to make the estate more legible with a major new public space at its heart. A hierarchy of open spaces will be developed from public to private with areas currently dominated by car parking reclaimed as shared amenity and play space. New community facilities will also be provided.

BPP is providing cost consultancy services.

BPP Photographic Evening 2016

31 May, 2016

BPP hosted a Drinks Party to view a Photographic Exhibition on Thursday 19th May 2016 at The Grazing Goat. A photography exhibition was produced and presented by a group of nine talented photography students studying on an HND in Photography Programme at the London College of Contemporary Arts (LCCA).

Celebrating the fourth year of the creative partnership between BPP and LCCA, a number of students were invited to creatively respond to the theme of “Construction”. The selected students had the chance to spend a day on a new BPP landmark development.  The project selected was Brackenbury Grove being developed by Citystyle Homes in West London.

The Brackenbury Grove development  will provide 57 homes, consisting of 51 for private sale and six for shared ownership. The elegantly designed scheme features eight commercial spaces, car parking and bicycle storage facilities. Properties feature their own private balcony for residents to enjoy.

The students photographed the site and produced unique, vibrant and often unexpected interpretations on the theme of Construction.

Overall a successful evening with a good turnout, complimented by flavoursome food and drinks.

Downham, Reigate Road, Lewisham BR1

21 March, 2016

The site was secured by Hollybrook.  BPP introduced the scheme to Hyde Group.  The scheme comprises 30 residential units in a mix of flats and duplex apartments.  The project was procured via a ‘golden brick’ arrangement under a development agreement.  Kevin Frost, one of BPP’s senior associates, was involved with the drafting and agreement of the documentation.

The site is located within the southern edge of the London Borough of Lewisham in an area defined as previously developed land.

The scheme is being developed to LHDG standards. The heating and hot water are being supplied via individual gas boilers with the main source for renewables being roof mounted photo voltaic panels.  The scheme will meet the renewable energy requirements for new homes.

The development is an opportunity to develop a vacant site,  repair the residential street urban grain with sustainable residential design and provide much needed additional housing.

BPP is providing Employer’s Agent, Quantity Surveyor and Site Inspector services.
