This project was originally envisaged as a private development with a small proportion of affordable housing.
However, the client, Inner London Group, constructed this for Estuary Housing Association who purchased all 93 units under a development agreement. ,Robert Lombardelli Partnership were appointed by Inner London Group as the Employers Agent for the project, which then had to fully comply with HCA DQS requirements, including lifetime homes and Code for Sustainable Homes level 3.
The key feature of our service on this project is our ability to understand all the compliance factors required to ensure HCA funding. Of equal importance it was necessary to align all the interests of the developer, local authority, housing association, designers and contractor.
Phase 1 of the scheme completed in July 2015. Value of works is £15m. Phase 2 is scheduled to commence in 2017.
