Godstone Road, Whyteleafe

Work is nearing completion on our large residential project at Godstone Road in Whyteleafe, with the first block about to be handed over. The project comprises 118 apartments in a range of unit sizes together with a 6,000 sq ft medical centre, arranged as 5 villa blocks around high quality hard and soft landscaping. Our work included extensive site optimisation, and preparation of high quality animations, CGI’s and marketing material. The project used an innovative masonry framing system to fast track the build programme and provide a high quality envelope. Externally the blocks are clad in crisply detailed brickwork, forming a striking new feature to Godstone Road.

Success at Committee for Battersea Scheme

Mountford Pigott LLP is delighted to announce that the London Borough of Wandsworth has passed a resolution to grant consent (subject to s106 agreement) for our exciting new York Road Battersea scheme for the Big Yellow Self Storage Company.

The mixed-use proposals have been painstakingly developed with a team of technical consultants and in close consultation with the local planning authority and the GLA.  The scheme will see the demolition of the existing buildings and the erection of a new 6 storey self-storage facility, including artists’ studios and flexible office space as well as 168 new residential units in blocks up to 20 storeys with ground floor retail and 1st and 2nd floor offices, basement parking and new public realm landscaped areas and podium. 

BYSS Wandsworth open for trading

Mountford Pigott is pleased to announce that the Big Yellow Self Storage store in Wandsworth is now complete and open for trading following the addition of a large and distinctive extension along Garratt Lane. Previous buildings on the site comprised a 6750m² BYSS facility and a vacant 4-storey office block.  The new extension increased the total self-storage area on site by 3500m² following the demolition of the vacant office building.

The new building follows the footprint of the existing office building closely but takes a significantly different approach to the prominent east elevation with the use of high quality materials and a striking architectural design to create a contemporary addition to the local area and much needed storage space for residential and business customers.

Work Started on Major Redevelopment, Botley Oxford

Mountford Pigott are pleased to announce that following the finalisation of a number of relocation and temporary phasing elements, the main works for the major redevelopment at Westway Place Botley Oxford have begun.

The scheme which redevelops the existing shopping centre and adjacent buildings has been split into two phases. Phase 1 comprises a 123 bedroom hotel and 261 unit student accommodation split over three blocks sited above a number of new retail units. A Baptist church, community and office spaces are also provided within this initial phase as well as a split level car park and new central boulevard.

Phase 2, which is due to start early next year, will provide 140 residential units split over two blocks, with the entire development due for completion late 2020.

Having taken this though the early design and the detailed planning process, Mountford Pigott will be working alongside contractor SDC to deliver this project on behalf of Botley Development Company.

 

 

Planning Consent for Legacy Buildings at Cane Hill Coulsdon

We are delighted to announce that Croydon Council has given planning consent for our proposals on behalf of Haxted Estates Ltd for the redevelopment of the legacy buildings at Cane Hill Coulsdon.  This project will see the preservation, re-imagination and sensitive refurbishment of three key legacy buildings which are all that survives of the much larger Cane Hill Hospital complex.  The rest of the Victorian hospital buildings were razed to enable the redevelopment of the site as the GLA’s largest current new-build housing project which is nearing completion and is already partially occupied.  The legacy buildings which comprise a chapel, a water tower and one wing of the administration building occupy pivotal locations around key areas of public realm within the development so their design received intense scrutiny not only from the planners but also from stakeholders including the GLA and housing developer Barratt Homes.  Each building presented its own particular set of challenges and merited its own unique design response, however a single, clear, philosophical approach to the existing fabric and new interventions has guided all design decisions resulting in a harmonious composition for the project.  Detailed design for construction is due to be instructed shortly.
