THE RESIDENCE, NINE ELMS
Bellway Homes (Thames Gateway) Ltd
Phase 1 £140m; Phase 2 £90m
The project involves the demolition of existing buildings and redevelopment of the site to provide new buildings ranging from 2 to 19 storeys in height. The first phase comprises 513 residential units including affordable housing and private residential sector, 2475 m² of commercial / community floor space, together with associated car parking, open space, landscaping and infrastructure works. The Second Phase will provide for a further 349 units.
The project is the largest single development delivered, not only, by Bellway’s Thames Gateway Division but by the entire Bellway Group; as such it is a highly strategic and important development which will be built to a high specification and design, providing a benchmark for future major developments. Its location at the centre of the Nine Elms Vauxhall Regeneration zone has made the challenges even larger.
K2’s role has been to provide development & project management services, to lead the team and provide commercial input into cost planning and procurement. In addition, the role includes the management of all the infrastructure works, securing the service connections, approvals from Network Rail and LUL and working with the wider area to secure power capacity and a district wide heating network. The role includes reviewing the overall sales specification, agreements with the commercial tenants and advising how to maximise the development returns.
