Davidson Tower, Bromley

English Churches Housing Group

This 10 storey residential tower block in Bromley had been built in the 1970s and had become outdated and difficult to let. The client and the Local Authority developed a reinvestment strategy. RLP proposed refurbishment options within a very tight budget, and the 72 bed-sits and 1 bed flats were redesigned to 48 one and two bed flats, with enhanced space standards. The old ribbon window system was replaced with highly insulated panels incorporating a sophisticated glazing system designed to minimise solar heat gain with maximum thermal efficiency. The project was carried out in phases with some residents in occupation throughout, requiring a significant degree of tenant liaison throughout the design and build processes.
