Martin Arnold is appointed to provide Employer’s Agent services for the delivery of concurrent schemes for a single client organisation.

The sites are located within close proximity in the London Borough of Hounslow and comprise a total of 123 residential units over three blocks. The completed properties will be marketed to shared ownership and rental occupiers.

Martin Arnold facilitated negotiation of the contracts resulting in the successful execution of amended forms of the JCT D&B 2016.

The professional and construction teams are common to both schemes and the synergies continue with common construction method and subcontract packages which has brought efficiencies in the ongoing administration of the contracts.

The works are currently underway with handover anticipated in 2Q 2022. The structural solution is steel frame and modern methods of construction are deployed including cassette floors and panelised SFS walls. Air source heat pumps have been specified to fulfil energy performance targets and address concerns over fossil fuels.

Martin Arnold has worked closely with the contractor and client to overcome pressures exerted by the wider environment. Welfare facilities have been adapted to accommodate social distancing measures which has enabled uninterrupted progress. Timely procurement of materials in combination with careful monitoring is averting shortages experienced elsewhere.

Key Challenges

The key challenges on these projects result from the proximity of neighbouring properties. Both schemes make full use of the available space on site and are built to the ownership boundaries.

Multiple party wall agreements have been required. Logistics management on these constrained, urban brownfield sites has also proved to be a key focus.
