Ground Works Press Ahead at Burnt Oak Broadway

The £17 million project at 3 Burnt Oak Broadway for Catalyst Housing Group is rapidly gathering pace, with groundworks now underway. The project is being delivered by Rydon Construction Ltd with Gibberd acting as executive architects. Foundations completed, work moves towards the erection of the superstructure, as the project quickly begins to take shape. The scheme, which consists of 76 high spec residential units as well as over 800m2 of retail space will be a landmark new development to Burnt Oak Town Centre, and a fantastic addition to the exceptional portfolio of residential projects worked on by Gibberd.

Representatives from Frederick Gibberd Partnership were recently invited to view the completed scheme at Wild Ash Croft in Sittingbourne. Gibberds were appointed by Optivo (formerly Amicus Horizon) to carry out the architectural design of the scheme, taking the proposals through a successful planning submission.

The project sought to introduce a contemporary mix of family homes on a site which had been home to some of Optivo’s aging and less desirable stock. The site had been beset by anti-social behaviour issues and a complete change of environment was required in order to provide attractive properties within an arrangement which would benefit the residents and the wider community.

Gibberds won a design competition for the commission. Their concept to introduce a new community space which included a play area and a multi-use games court, overlooked and informally monitored by the new homes was well received and looks set to have created a well-equipped, desirable, attractive and unique place to live for its new tenants.
