Eastwell House – Social Housing Upgrade

Location: London SE1
Client: The London Borough of Southwark
Architect: Scanlans Consultant Surveyors LLP

Eastwell House is a 4 storey maisonette block in the Tabard Garden Estate in Southwark. The contract involved the renewal of kitchens, bathrooms and WC’s in 50 No. occupied flats. Additionally, complete new heating systems were installed and each flat was rewired. New lateral mains were also installed to the entire block.

Working in occupied units, especially when working with electrics, heating, kitchens and bathrooms, is a problem to both builders and tenants alike. The works were completed within the contract period to the delight of all concerned. This success was achieved through excellent site management and control, a first class tenant liaison officer and a swift building of trust between the contractor and the tenant.

The superstructure boasted a green oak frame, handmade facing bricks and peg roofing tiles and was joyfully brought together with fine expert craftsmanship.

Digby Greenways Estate

Location: Bethnal Green, E2
Client: London Borough of Tower Hamlets

These two five story maisonette blocks in the heart of London’s East End are typical of the properties that we work on for various local authorities in the London area. The scheme required improved access and security provisions for the tenants. A tower was built to each block providing a lift, lift lobby and rubbish chute facilities and was constructed using traditional methods and materials. The towers were enhanced externally by the unusual lead covered roof above four sided glazed plant room, with a large reconstituted stone cornice.

A new entry system, including secure entrance doors to each block and to each landing, together with new steel and mesh balustrades, have improved both the appearance and the security of these buildings.
