The selection process for our contractor for the main works is now complete. Our thanks go to the two residents who sat on the interview panel which marked the final stage of the selection process.
We are delighted to announce that Ardmore Construction Ltd has been selected as our constructor/partner for Phase 1. From an outstanding short list of six builders, choosing Ardmore was based on a number of criteria which included their experience and expertise in building high quality mixed tenure regeneration schemes in London.
James Byrne, the Ardmore Director who will be responsible for the project told us “We are delighted with this news and the entire project team is looking forward to working with Catalyst on this unique and prestigious contract.”
Ardmore is already preparing for a start in December when the project team will take possession of the site to start creating their compound area and continuing with the groundworks started by Galldris.
An update on the construction programme will be included in the January edition of Here & Now which will also include a special “Spotlight” section on the key people from Ardmore who will be working on the scheme.
Also over the next few weeks, you will see more activity on and around the site as Ardmore begins to bring equipment onto the site. We would also like to reassure residents that 24/7 security will be maintained on the site throughout the holiday period. The contact number for any information or emergencies relating to the site is 07949 713332.
Our ground worker, Galldris, is making good progress preparing the foundations for Block 1 and is currently ahead of schedule with work expected to complete in December.
