DESCRIPTION

The Pragel Street project is part of the London Borough of Newham’s development programme to offer a number of high quality new homes within the borough. This will offer a real choice of accommodation for residents, with Pragel street being a shared equity offering. This scheme in particular, is on a brownfield site.

The project consisted of the construction of 21 new build homes using a timber frame. These were made up of 12 three bedroom homes, and 9 two bed homes.

The site itself presented a number of construction logistics challenges, and needed careful boundary management, being surrounded by residential properties, and also the fact that the scheme is a complex shape as the site fits in to a roughly triangular piece of land. The new building essentially wraps around the whole piece of land and creates a combination of single aspect units as well as traditional dual aspect units.

The construction involved deep strip foundations, beam and block ground floor, a timber and steel frame construction with brick clad facades, composite windows and a Sarnafil roof. The scheme has achieved Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4.
