£50m London regeneration projects awarded

GB Building Solutions has secured contracts worth over £50m at two London regeneration schemes on Greenwich Peninsula for Knight Dragon and in Mill Hill for Countryside Annington (Mill Hill) Ltd.

The Greenwich Peninsula scheme includes 10,000 new homes near the Millennium Dome, as well as shops, offices and schools.

GB Building Solutions will deliver a nine-storey apartment building comprising 161 units of private, shared ownership and social housing. The development has been designed to reduce energy demand.

The thermal performance of the building envelope has been maximised with a strong focus placed on the optimisation of the glazed façade, use of balconies as shading and improving the thermal performance of the building fabric exposed to the outside elements.

The building is due for completion in early 2015.

Further north, GB Building Solutions has been awarded a multi-million pound contract at Millbrook Park by Countryside Annington (Mill Hill) Ltd, a joint venture between developer Countryside Properties and Annington Developments.

The Millbrook Park development has secured planning for 2,174 new homes, ancillary retail, light industrial and office space, an energy centre and a new two-form primary school and health centre as well as almost six hectares of parks and open space.

GB Building Solutions’ contract comprises 133 units including 31 one bedroom and 61 two bedroom apartments, 14 three bedroom and 27 four bedroom houses including access roads, car parks and landscaping.

Twelve of the units will be affordable properties available through Notting Hill Housing Trust.

Work is due for completion in July 2015.
