Du Cane Road Development, Hammersmith

Ducane Housing Association

Completed in 2017, this project for Ducane H.A. presented several logistical challenges due to the proximity of the Wormwood Scrubs prison and Hammersmith Hospital. Works to 166 units, included the phased refurbishment of 122 existing homes and the construction of 44 new homes. The refurbishment works involved improving the existing 1970’s Bison Wall Frame buildings, to Decent Homes standards, with increased insulation. Modern Methods of Construction were adopted for the new units, with modular units constructed off site, to meet the Code for Sustainable Homes.
