Shepherds Bush Road

Project Description

This is a development of 7 one bedroom flats on four storeys with a small retail unit on the ground floor.

The site, an ex public toilet, is sandwiched between a girls’ school and a Grade II listed library. It occupies most of the site including the complete frontage with just a small amenity space to the rear.

Shepherds Bush Road is a busy main road and is also a red route adding to the delivery and material storage problems of a tight site. To minimize the need for crane offloads and allow smaller deliveries the originally designed blockwork internal walls and concrete floors have been replaced by metal stud partitioning and timber joists. To satisfy Transport for London (TFL) everything had to be designed to minimize crane offloads and allow smaller manageable deliveries and this was managed through the flexibility of our direct labour force and with the assistance of our partnered suppliers.

Another major problem was co-ordinating incoming services on a red route which required patience and persistence.

The project was delayed from the original completion date while these issues were resolved but still met the revised date and achieved EcoHomes “Very Good”.

The scheme commenced in June 2007 and was completed in September 2008.
