Mount Pleasant Phases 3 & 4


Completed: January, 1970

Services: Mechanical, Electrical & Public Health, Sustainability & Building Physics, Digital Engineering

Sector: Residential

Client: Taylor Wimpey Central London

A new development comprising five blocks of 336 mixed tenure residential dwellings, with ground floor commercial space, basement car parking and public open spaces.

Forming part of the wider Postmark London development, this project will regenerate the site of an operational Royal Mail Group Depot, Sorting Office and Postal Museum - including the Royal Mail private underground railway network.

The Role of FHP

FHP are responsible for the MEP design from concept to construction; including RIBA Stage 2 Concept Design, RIBA Stage 3 Developed Design, RIBA Stage 4 Technical Design and RIBA Stage 5 Construction, as well as Energy Consultancy Services.


The complexity in this development is the careful co-ordination of services between the Taylor Wimpey and Royal Mail boundaries.

As the residential blocks (client’s demise) are to be built above the existing basement, the service distribution and drainage routes need to be considered and designed within the agreed Access Rights strategy.
