A strategic London regeneration scheme
Working directly with architects, Southstudio, for Brent Council we have been providing masterplanning and performance-based design for a multi-phase, mixed-use regeneration of the Stonebridge Estate since 2016, starting with a primary school project and then moving on to multiple residential phases.
Stonebridge Primary School redevelopment
Stonebridge Primary School was operating as two form entry, with bulge classrooms on an annexe site and needed to expand into a three-form entry primary school. This required a design that worked on the enlarged site of the existing listed building. The school site formed a vital part of a larger master plan for Stonebridge.
Hydrock was commissioned to work with Southstudio to provide masterplan and performance-based building performance engineering design for the redevelopment.
The scheme comprised a new two-storey building, with six classrooms and an assembly hall, demolitions, alterations and the refurbishment of the existing three-storey Grade II listed building. The redeveloped facilities were handed over to the school in October 2018.
Multiple residential phases
We were also appointed to continue working with Southstudio and the Council, to provide building performance engineering services for the next phase of the regeneration, the redevelopment of three residential sites.
The Hillside, Milton Avenue and Twybridge sites together comprise 79 apartments, 37 houses, commercial space and ground ﬂoor parking. Our scope of service included an Energy and Sustainability statement, external lighting plots and statement, CfSH pre-assessment, daylight and sunlight assessment, acoustic surveys and an MEP RIBA Stage 2 Sketch Summary Report.
The sites range from two and three storey houses to four, five and six storey apartment blocks, including new assisted living accommodation.
At the start of 2020, these sites were at tender stage with main contractors.
