New Coal Mining Firm Conducts Impact Study

Specialist London housing contractor United House has been awarded a £12.3m contract to build a new residential scheme, designed by Assael Architecture, on the site of the former Alfa Laval office on the Great West Road in Brentford, west London – the historic ‘Golden Mile’ of British industry.

Cutting-edge architects Assael Architecture have designed the mixed-use scheme which includes private and affordable residential housing with a mix of one, two and three-bed apartments, three-bed duplex apartments and four-bed houses. A second phase will incorporate hotels, commercial office space, a car showroom and additional residential and community facilities.

United House will be carrying out the construction works on behalf of developer Carlton Properties. The project will transform the derelict office building site, which has stood empty for over 15 years, into a residential scheme comprising 69 new homes, 61 of which will be affordable properties for the local community.

The project will involve the partial demolition of the existing redundant 11-storey office building and elevated car parking areas which sits adjacent to the elevated section of the M4. The facade of the building is used as a large advertising display for the motorway traffic and this will be retained during the construction process. The build programme is scheduled for completion in September 2014.

Jeffrey Adams, Group Chief Executive of United House, said: “It is fantastic for United House to be playing a part in the next stage of regeneration on the historic “Golden Mile” of west London. This new project will breathe new life back into a derelict office building which has lain empty for more than a decade, providing much needed housing for London. We look forward to delivering Carlton Properties’ vision for the scheme.”
