- Contractor Wates Construction
- Contract Value £5,000,000.00
- Development A mixed use commercial and residential development on the first housing scheme of the Elephant and Castle Transformation Programme.
The site, located at Wansey Street in the Elephant & Castle, provides new private and affordable homes and commercial space.
Wansey Street was used as the demonstration project to show the high quality design standards for the proposed transformation scheme, of the Heygate Estate.
Architect DRMM’s design was to create interlocking accommodation, intended to house a mixture of different social groups. Internal space and light was of a high priority and reflected within the design.
Appropiate materials and the availability of materials were considered due to the constrained time scales.
We had to maintain a balance between the design, cost and programme of the works.
