We were engaged by Lendlease in 2016 to tender for the glazing solutions for the extensive ground floor level business, restaurant and retail units at the Elephant Park development. The development included several other elements such as common access areas and communal entrances to both private residences and affordable housing.
Lendlease has been working in partnership with London’s Southwark Council to deliver a £2.3 billion regeneration project with over 3000 new homes in Elephant & Castle since 2010. Elephant Park will create space for 50 new local shops, restaurants and cafes and will include affordable rented commercial properties to attract local, independent businesses. In total, Elephant Park will create c.32,000 square metres of retail, business, community and leisure space, 3,000 new homes (25% affordable housing) and 6,000 new jobs (5,000 in construction and 1,000 in completed development).
Lendlease’s advanced procurement initiative, with early procurement by over a year, yielded advantages with respect to design development and cost certainty to the client on this scheme.
