Acton Gardens Phase 7.1
Progress on the award-winning Acton Gardens development in West London is steaming ahead, with Construction now underway across Phase 7.1 of the £600m project, which is a joint venture between Countryside Properties and L&Q.
Acton Gardens is one of the largest residential regeneration schemes in London, aiming to transform the 52-acre site of the former South East estate in to a vibrant new urban quarter. When complete, the scheme will deliver over 2,500 new homes, along with enhanced transport links, retail and community facilities and extensive public open spaces, throughout a 21 multi-phased initiative that is anticipated to be complete in 2026.
Phase 7.1 will concentrate on the areas surrounding Church Road, Ragley Close, Telfer Close and Avenue Road Park, positioned to the North East of the estate. With the hoarding in place, building footprints installed and perimeter boundaries now secure, the external Demolition works that are to be conducted by Mick George Ltd, can now commence.
The proposal is to deliver 246 new homes, which will include 104 affordable homes, and 142 for private sale homes, in a mix of apartments, houses and duplex uberhaus, all of which are scheduled to finish by summer 2020.
Mick George Ltd has also been selected to complete major Asbestos Management practices, as well as Bulk Earthwork provisions to enable access routes, car parking, landscaping and other communal outdoor amenity space. The contract in its entirety is worth £1.3million.
Mike Woolliscroft, Operations Director for Countryside stated: ‘’Acton Gardens is evolving rapidly. Through the delivery of the early phases, the development is already well established as a highly attractive place to live.’’
Michael George, Contracts Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’Having worked in partnership with Countryside Properties on a number of developments in the past, we’re pleased that they have recognised our credentials in providing multiple services on a project of this magnitude. Our contracting services are becoming increasingly sought after up and down the country, which is a testament to the quality of service that the business is providing.’’
