Galliford Try plc, announces that its Building division has successfully won a £25 million contract to build the Hambrook House residential scheme in Lambeth, South London for Muse Developments.
The contract award builds on the existing relationship with national developer and urban regeneration specialist Muse, having previously built the Chatham Place development in Reading and the One Smithfield Square project in Manchester for the same client.
The new Hambrook House project will involve the creation of a mixed-use building providing 94 residential units, with associated bike and refuse stores and a ground floor commercial unit. The building height ranges from six to 14 storeys and communal amenity spaces are provided at both ground and roof levels.
Notting Hill Housing, a key partner for Galliford Try in a number of schemes across London, is also involved in the project, managing the 48 new affordable homes created by the development.
Hambrook House was previously used by Lambeth Council as a housing office, and is part of a wider development of the Council’s estate by Muse, which includes refurbishing and remodelling the Town Hall and creating new Council offices.
Matthew Pool, Galliford Try London and South East Commercial Managing Director, commented: “We are delighted to be working once again with Muse on this fantastic regeneration project in the heart of Lambeth. Our business has a strong track record in mixed-use development across London and we look forward to working with Muse to create high-quality homes for the local community.”
Cllr Matthew Bennett, Cabinet member for Housing, said: “I am delighted that work has started on these desperately needed new homes. We are determined to do all we can to deliver the housing this borough needs which is why this scheme features 94 units, 48 of which will be affordable.”
The development is due to be completed in September 2018.
