Bromley housing scheme
Mid-density, 32 weeks build programme
Location: London Borough of Bromley
Client: Bromley Council
Status: Planning granted
In collaboration with
After two council meetings (scrutiny and approval) Bromley Council have approved an award subject to planning for a turnkey project for 25 homes for tenants currently in temporary accommodation.
The scheme optimises the development of housing on a constrained site whilst preserving the existing land use by using different housing typologies.
The proposal would provides a mixture of 1 to 2 bed affordable rent units and would contribute to the Council’s housing stock and affordable housing provision.
The site comprises two terraces of residential dwellings containing 6 single storey apartments and 19 duplex apartments, all with GIFA’s above National Space Standards, built on top of a steel frame. The steel frame will enable the continued use of the land beneath the apartments to be used for public car parking. The two terraces have two staircases to access the communal corridor at either end of the terrace. This creates the residents access to the first floor entry level. Entry is security controlled at the ground floor level with a fob.
Low carbon and sustainable housing are at the heart of the scheme with super insulation, airtightness, low energy heating systems and renewable energy technologies to complement the fabric first energy performance.
