Bouygues UK team wins major residential and retail scheme in Lewisham

Bouygues UK subsidiary Denne, has announced the award of a £57million contract to deliver a major mixed use development scheme in Lewisham, south east London. The project is being constructed on behalf of L&Q, one of the largest residential developers in London.

The project is located on a former industrial site on Thurston Road and includes more than 400 new homes for people on a range of incomes, and 6,771sqm of retail space.

The apartments will be in three buildings of six, seven and 15 storeys respectively, sitting on a two storey landscaped podium structure which incorporates the retail space. The buildings will be constructed with a concrete frame and includes two levels of resident and shopper car parking.

Sustainability is high on the agenda, with an offsite Combined Heat and Power system providing heating and hot water. Brown roofs will also be a feature of most of the buildings to aid biodiversity.

All apartments will meet Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 and the retail units have a target to achieve BREEAM Excellent.

The professional team includes ECE Architecture, architects, Walsh Associates, consulting engineer, Whitecode Design Associates, M&E consultant, and EC Harris, built asset consultants.

Paul Abson, Managing Director of Bouygues UK’s Housing Management Unit, said:

“We are delighted to have been awarded the contract to deliver this prestigious mixed use project, which enables us to continue our excellent working relationship with L&Q.

“With a strong focus on sustainability, we believe the scheme will transform the existing site and also provide much needed homes for the people of Lewisham.”
