As part of a large scale regeneration scheme for Notting Hill Housing, Camberwell Fields in Edmund Street offers ten blocks of apartments and eight terrace houses.
In total 279 new homes have been constructed, 77 of which are classed as affordable housing. The development itself is a mix of 95 private sale, 120 shared ownership, and 64 social rented properties.
THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION JOURNEY
Replacing a run-down 1960’s estate, the new site will offer stylish living overlooking the picturesque south west corner of Burgess Park – one of south London’s largest open spaces.
For EOS Framing, key highlights of the build include the large blocks varying in height and shape together with the mix of building types – all adopting the same light steel frame technology and being suitable for medium rise homes.
Camberwell Fields had a very short design programme of four weeks. This meant all design, manufacturing and deliveries were set to a strict timescale. EOS achieved all timescales, with blocks running concurrently. This was done through a dedicated in house design team, efficient co-ordination between design, manufacture and site to deliver just in time (JIT) supported by a pro-active architect who approved drawings rapidly.
At a time when the housing shortage is a prominent issue and house prices in Camberwell have shot up by 10 per cent in the past 12 months to an average of £500,000, Camberwell Fields offers first-time buyers the opportunity to get on the housing ladder in a rapidly improving south London district. This development provides one of the most densely populated cities in the world with 279 new homes – 77 being classed as affordable.
EOS are pleased to have played a role in a project that will enrich the lives of the occupants.
