We were appointed on a two stage contract to develop the design and construction of Citizens House, Brasted Close. The site was a previously unused garage site, where we constructed the new affordable homes for London CLT. London CLT was the first community land trust in London to be created by the community; a partnership of Lewisham Citizens, Lewisham Council and the GLA.
The project consists of 11 new apartments made up of 1 and 2 bedroom homes, plus hard and soft landscaping to the communal and private gardens. Now completed, the new homes provide genuine permanently affordable homes for local people.
The site is located in a densely populated residential area and the local primary school is adjacent. We developed a relationship with the local residents and the adjacent school by hosting resident meetings prior to construction and issuing monthly newsletters, keeping all stakeholders informed of the progress of the works. We also collaborated with the local secondary school who painted a mural on the hoarding.
