Kings Reach, Barking, London

RLP Roles: Employer’s Agent

Sectors: Residential

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 Design Homes Ltd who purchased all 79 units under a development agreement.

RLP Surveyors 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 scheme also provided a business unit on the ground floor which is separated from the residential areas.

The key feature of our service on this project was the ability to understand all the compliance factors required to ensure HCA funding. Of equal importance was the requirement to align all the interests of the developer, local authority, housing association, designers and the contractor.

The total project value was approximately £6.4m.
