Located close to the London Olympics Village, East Thames Housing Group developed a scheme of 100 new houses and flats for affordable rent and shared ownership sale. The project was a resounding success in collaborative working under the PPC 2000 Partnering Form of Contract between the client, the design team, the Constructor and Avebury as Project Manager.
The contract was awarded to Wates Living Space following a limited tender with another East Thames Framework Partner Constructor. The initial tender price was followed by detailed negotiations between Avebury Projects and Wates to arrive at an Agreed Maximum Price.
The Works commenced on site in March 2007 and completed in April 2009, on budget and two months ahead of the contract completion date. The standards achieved on this project have won much praise from the client and the local authority as stakeholders. The shared ownership homes have been well received by the local people and have attracted many buyers despite the difficult housing market at the time.
The scheme was also nominated for an RIBA design award.
