As a part of Hounslow Council’s housing target initiatives, Frankham were commissioned by Lampton 360 to provide Employer’s Agent services for the construction of an eight-storey block of 75 apartments with 1 community use unit on ground floor. The site, which previously housed a community youth centre, is located on Lampton Road within the London Borough of Hounslow.
The tenure mix of the development provided private sale, private rental sales and affordable housing units. Architects (Archadia) proposed a robust design, sympathetic to the surrounding context comprising, alternate tone patterned brickwork and pale green glazed balcony upstands, giving a rhythm to the façade and a contemporary feel.
The development comprises a 405m² community use unit (A1, A2, D1) and 75 apartments over nine floors. The apartments will be in a range of sizes from 40m²suites to 90m2 3 bed 5 person units. Tenure – 40% affordable – of which 60% affordable/social rented, 40% intermediate.
The project was successfully delivered on 29th January 2020. There was a large amount of change and adaptation required on this project due to the various approaches and parties involved changing mid project. We feel it demonstrates Frankham’s experience in providing a service to suit a variety of construction delivery methods and procurement routes. Our commercial knowledge helped smooth the introduction of leaseholder purchasers and their varying requirements. We demonstrated our ability to adapt our role to suit and to continue to provide value in our service demonstrating business agility and depth of experience.
