FHP is Going Green!
22nd February 2022
FHP is pleased to announce that we have secured the MEP Design Services contract on the next phase of the Portobello Square regeneration at the Wornington Green estate in North Kensington.
The estate, originally built between 1964 and 1985, consisted of 538 houses and flats in predominantly large deck-blocks, which are being knocked down and replaced in phases. Once complete, the full £350m regeneration project will deliver around 1,000 new homes, new commercial and community spaces, and a dramatically improved public realm including 2.3 acres of new public park.
Bouygues UK is expected to begin construction of Phase 2b in June 2022, with around two years for estimated completion. This phase will deliver 230 new homes, including 108 homes for social rent alongside 11 homes for shared ownership.
As well as providing regeneration, the project will offer employment, training and social value opportunities which will enhance the lives of local people long after the construction works have completed. They will include new apprenticeship positions, support for job seekers, new community and youth initiatives as well as more investment in the local area.
