DESCRIPTION

This private development project comprised a terrace of seven houses, which steps down from the hill across the existing site. The terrace has been located at the centre of the site whilst avoiding disruption to the many existing trees.

The structural design solution comprised pre-cast concrete basement and ground floor slabs, with two storey steel portal frames to each unit, providing lateral stability to the terrace. Load bearing masonry will support upper floors of timber engineered joists.

The elevation treatment included timber shingle cladding, render and metal windows with associated panels. The roofs are pitched and stepped on each house in line with the topography.

Rooff acted as a specialist consultant during the pre-construction phase under the terms of a professional services contract, and as principal contractor for the construction phase. A two-stage approach was adopted which allowed Rooff to use their experience and construction knowledge to contribute to the design solution at an early stage.

DESCRIPTION

Rooff purchased and carried out extensive refurbishment work to the Granary’s adjoining sister building, the Malthouse. The Malthouse formed part of the original ‘Maltings’ complex built for Randalls Malt Roasters in the 1860’s. 

The works involved the creation of a number of small and large studios that are let out to artists. Two large studios offer a flexible space that can be used for rehearsals, exhibitions, performances and corporate events, managed by The Boathouse Barking CIC. Smaller studio spaces are let out to individual creative entrepreneurs and artists. 

The Granary and the Malthouse, form the heart of the remaining historic buildings situated on the River Roding at Barking Creek and tell a wonderful story of the commercial fishing and Malting heritage of the Barking Town Quay area.

The refurbishment of these locally listed historic industrial buildings formed part of the first phase of the longer term regeneration objectives in the Abbey Road area, and helped kick start the development of the Creative Industries Quarter, which Rooff now own and manage.

DESCRIPTION

The Artesian Building in Grange Road is the ‘flagship’ development for the ‘Bermondsey Spa’ Regeneration Development promoted by Southwark Council. This site was originally marketed through a competition, which was won by a partnership between Rooff Limited, Pollard Thomas and Edwards Architects and Hyde Housing Association. The scheme consists of 73 mixed tenure flats above a ‘six doctor practice’ Health Centre, in a curved block of very high quality   urban design. The development is a truly ‘mixed use’, with the ground floor occupied by a fully fitted Health Centre, Pharmacy, Dentist and PCT offices which are run by the local primary care trust.

The design of the health centre was successful managed through constant co-operation and consultation with specialist health centre architects, the PCT representative and district valuer.

This project developed successful environmental practices through; combined heat and power, communal heating system, green roof installation and a highly insulated external fabric.

Efficient project management by Rooff aided the delivery of the scheme which achieved the essential key outputs of cost, quality and programme performance. This project was procured on a full open book PPC 2000 Partnering basis with Rooff Ltd acting as lead designer.
