What They Said: Family Mosaic, the owners of mixed-use housing development that will provide over 80 new homes in the London Borough of Greenwich, have appointed construction company Bouygues UK to deliver the £20m project.
The design and build scheme at Creek Road will provide a combination of 83 homes, of which 62 will be for affordable housing. The development will also include 1800sqm of commercial space at ground level and involves the demolition and removal of the derelict homes and a disused car wash currently on the site. The front of the Up the Creek Comedy Club will also be renovated as part of the plans. The homes will be built to Level 4 Code for Sustainable Homes.
Family Mosaic is one of the largest housing providers in London, Essex and the Southeast, providing around 24,000 homes for rent. It is also a member of the influential G15 group of London-based housing associations. Collectively, the g15 provide homes for around 1 in every 10 Londoners and manage in the region of 410,000 homes in the capital.
Demolition and excavation work is currently underway at the site and construction is scheduled to begin early next year. The new homes are due for completion in late 2016.
Angela Wood, Development Director at Family Mosaic, said: “We are very excited that works have now commenced to build this scheme and are proud that it will deliver a significant number of affordable homes.”
Bouygues UK’s Regional Director for Housing in London, John Campion, said: “We’re happy to be working with Family Mosaic to deliver housing for residents here in the London Borough of Greenwich. This is a complex project, which will involve careful and sensitive removal of existing buildings and structures on the site and the construction of 83 new homes with a combination of tenures to address different housing needs. As this contract shows, we are committed to working with social housing providers to deliver high quality homes as part of economically viable mixed-use housing schemes in the capital.”
