Cambridge Road Construction Continues

Progress continues at Cambridge Road, our residential scheme in Barking, as captured by the project’s structural engineer’s Heyne Tillet Steel. With only a handful of floors to go, the prefabricated balconies have started to appear and the internal fit out is well underway.

 

Sited at the edge of Barking station, the scheme was ideally located for a high density development. With a narrow plot and in order to escape a traditional slab typology, we introduced an aggregated arrangement of connected drums which combine efficiency of volume with natural dual aspect orientations.

 

A network of roof gardens are accessible to residents, providing decked walkways, stepped features, hardwood timber seating and raised planters replete with colourful verbena, textured miscanthus and structured bamboo.

 

Due for completion in 2019, the development is for Nu Living Homes - Swan Housing's in-house developer - and The London Borough of Barking and Dagenham.
