Kier has been appointed by Newlon Housing Trust to deliver its brand-new £37.2m residential development near Tottenham Hale in Haringey in the fifth project Kier has undertaken for the Trust in recent years.
The 22-storey scheme comprises 128 flats; 117 of which are Shared Ownership apartments and 11 private sale, as well as one retail unit on the ground floor with the view to provide a local amenity to residents. The new development helps to address London Mayor, Sadiq Khan’s affordable housing bid for the capital with 91% of the homes being sold under Shared Ownership.
Works include building over a Thames Water Trunk Sewer and 2 Victoria Line LUL tunnels. CFA piled foundations ranging from 600 – 1200mm dia. A reinforced Concrete frame, infilled with a steel structural framing system with the building façade comprising mainly handset brickwork. It will include all infrastructure works, complete with all services, associated external works and connection to mains drainage and service mains as well as all requisite services diversion.
The project commenced in January 2019, with works due to complete in May 2021.
Cliff Thomas managing director for Kier London, commented: “We have a strong relationship with Newlon Housing Trust and are thrilled to be working on its new residential development for the residents of North London.
