Value: £48m

Situated close to the London Olympic Stadium, this development of 7 mixed use new build residential and commercial unit blocks was spread out over several construction phases, to provide 202 residential apartments, 2,511sqm commercial space and a below ground basement car park.

The site was designed to accommodate 3 electrical substations; one dedicated to the Bream Street development and two existing for the local electrical network and the adjacent Foreman’s Yard.

The Role of FHP

FHP were employed by Quadrant Construction to develop the MEP design to Stage 4a tender to procure the MEP Sub-Contractor on a Design and Build Contract.  FHP were then appointed to develop the design through the Construction Stage and provide their Working drawings for installation purposes. 


As the handover programme and sequencing of the development was done over several phases, to avoid water stagnation and legionella during the early phases of the scheme, potable water was served from a central break tank and booster set within the basement, which was split into two tanks for staged installation.
