The regeneration of the Aylesbury neighbourhood is a long-term partnership between Notting Hill Genesis and Southwark Council. Over the lifetime of the project it will deliver more than 3,500 new homes, half of which will be affordable housing. The scheme will also provide community facilities and improved open spaces.
We have provided pre-planning advice for Phases I and II of the overall masterplan and we are currently delivering the First Development Site with a Design & Build contractor, Hill Partnership. This project will deliver 815 new homes arranged in six blocks, four of which will range from three to nine storeys plus a 20-storey tower, and the remaining two blocks include terraced housing, 50 Extra Care apartments and six houses designed specifically for people with learning disabilities.
All buildings are being constructed using reinforced concrete flat slab construction. We have rationalised the structural arrangement to suit this form of construction and have provided the most efficient frame to reduce the environmental embodied carbon impact as far as possible. New stringent thermal, acoustic and fire regulations were included within our design for the complex facades and balconies.
The first development site was split into three sub-phases. Construction is nearing completion on a strategically important building, the Approved Premises Facility, separate from the first development at Aylesbury and forming part of the Phase II works. Once complete, this new separate building will make it possible for the first sub-phase of the main development site to itself be completed by allowing the decant of tenants and demolition of one of the existing buildings on the first phase site.
