THE LOCATION

Kidbrooke Village is one of Berkeley’s biggest regeneration projects to date, costing an estimated £1 billion, making it one of the largest residential developments in London. It consists of four distinct yet integrated neighbourhoods: City Point, Blackheath Quarter, Kidbrooke Village Centre and Meridian Gate.

Located in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Kidbrooke Village is one of London’s most significant new housing-led developments; the £1 billion regeneration is transforming the area into a new community in partnership with the Royal Borough of Greenwich and the Mayor of London.

WHAT PHD SUPPLIED

PHD has an established relationship with the Berkeley Group and building on our previous success we were awarded the scaffold contract on this award-winning development. Layher System scaffold was chosen by the client. The benefits of using the Layher system is that it is more aesthetically pleasing, it can be erected and dismantled quicker than tube and fitting and it has less components so it is safer.

HEALTH, SAFETY THE ENVIRONMENT

There was an accelerated programme in place and we erected and dismantled 13,000 m2 of scaffold in 32 weeks without compromising on health and safety. In fact, we won a Health and Safety award from Berkeley Homes in recognition of our high standards. During our time on this project we took on 2 local apprentices who have since become level 2 scaffolders for the company.

VOLUNTEERING

While working in Greenwich we supported a local community project, The Kidbrooke Park Allotment Association (KPAA). PHD donated recycled railway sleepers and several volunteers spent a day tidying the allotment up.
