Great consultation turnout
This week saw us joining a well-attended community consultation about one of our infill site projects with Thurrock council where we heard some fascinating anecdotes including where Thurrock’s Olympic javelin thrower, Dave Ottley, or was it Fatima Whitbread, used to practise!
Exciting start to the year!
Newground has been selected to join the latest Notting Hill Genesis Development Consultants Framework. Our selection comes on the back of a growing portfolio of affordable housing and net zero carbon/Passivhaus projects for a number of local authorities across London.
Happy Holidays, all
We had a great day out of the office with the team as we head into the festive season. Some inspiration at the sensational Cezanne exhibition at the Tate Modern, followed by Xmas dinner.
Green light for Kerswell
Another planning success for Kerswell Close for LB Haringey. A distinctive new building on a prominent corner site, it provides 25 new homes for council rent with significant carbon reduction and mature trees retained. Well done, team!
Architecture in Schools
Every year, we take part in Open City’s Architecture in Schools programme. This year, Gui and Tati ran workshops with the Year 5s at St Paul’s Primary, Tower Hamlets. They made models out of spaghetti and marshmallows and visited interesting buildings in the area. The theme was Reimagine London.
Watts Close thumbs up
Watts Close, the first of our projects in partnership with Haringey Council, has been unanimously approved. The net-zero carbon scheme will provide 12 new flats and six family houses for council rent, contributing to the council’s ambitious new-build direct development programme.
