Martin Arnold were appointed on this new build residential development, consisting of 26 Affordable Rent apartments on an infill site in Harrow, North-West London.  Alongside erecting new homes, the project involved associated external works including landscaping existing communal spaces which several of the apartments overlook from balcony terraces, located at the front and rear of the development.

Our team were engaged as Employer’s Agent, Clerk of Works and Principal Designer. As part of these roles, we aided the client in making the relevant adjustments to their employer’s requirements and JCT Contract. We also finalised the project finances which allowed us to administer and deliver the scheme to our client’s satisfaction. Construction quality was monitored throughout the build by our expert site inspectors who coordinated inspections right up to handover with the client’s development team.

Prior to starting construction, a number of derelict garages required demolition. As the site was on an existing estate, careful consideration had to be given to the estate’s existing residents, with work being scheduled in a way that would minimise the impact on their day-to-day lives. Additionally, the team collaborated with them to introduce a landscaping design that would help to curb antisocial behaviour which had been an issue on the estate.

As part of the social value package of this site, residents were sent a questionnaire to determine how best to spend the fund. Residents opted for further landscaping features including benches, lights and perennial planting where possible.

Overall, Martin Arnold played an integral part in the delivery of this project to ensure the scheme was delivered on time and within budget.
