Called Sandwood Court, the project involves the demolition and clearance of an existing two-storey car park and garages to provide a new four to six-storey comprising 24 new high-quality affordable homes in Brent between Brondesbury Road and Algernon Road, which includes a mix of 3 bedroom maisonettes and 1-2 bedroom flats with access to private and communal amenity spaces.
The project provides all design and build works together with associated services, infrastructure and external works. The development achieves a good standard of sustainability which seeks to minimise its impact on the local environment and provide scope and encouragement for the future residents to adopt a sustainable lifestyle.
The design team have selected recycled, responsibly sourced and sustainably manufactured building materials for the main building elements where possible. Materials used at the construction site were effectively managed to minimise environmental impacts during the construction stage. The project was also registered and certified under the Considerate Constructors Scheme complying with the requirements of the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice.
