Martello were commissioned as Employer’s Agent and CDM Principal Designer for this scheme in Birchanger Road, Croydon for Croydon Churches Housing Association(CCHA)
The CCHA was founded back in 1967, to meet the housing needs of the local people and continues to develop new homes within the community, managing over 1,400 homes in Croydon, Bromley, Sutton and Merton, This particular project was a new build construction, comprising of three, 3 bedroom, five person houses, built on the site of a car park and attached to two existing blocks of flats.
The Planning Architect that we worked with on the project was BPTW Partnership, the design of the properties provides a modern, urban look. The properties are traditionally built to the requirements of Homes England and the London Housing Design Guide, with feature glass balconies.
The Principal Contractor for the scheme was Spencer Francis, who Martello have worked with on previous projects.
This was a fascinating project to be involved with – an established Housing Association that is embracing modern, urban design solutions and making great use of brownfield sites to deliver good quality, affordable housing within the community.
