Architectural Steelwork

Silchester is one of several new build schemes being developed by Peabody, one of London's oldest and largest housing associations with Mace being the main contractor. This development includes the demolition of the existing garages, day centre and estate office and the construction of 112 new mixed tenure residential units.

The form of the building is a traditional RC frame with a masonry façade and punched in composite windows. The building is to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes level 4 and as such has extensive photovoltaic panels on the roof in combination with further areas of green and brown roofing.

At the time of construction commencing on site the building has been shortlisted for a New London Architecture Award. It is anticipated between Peabody and the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea that the Silchester project will be a benchmark for the future regeneration of the North Kensington residential social housing area.
