Following the successful completion of Phase 1 works, Phase 2 of Gascoigne’s re-generation works are now underway. Phase 2 consists of 386 dwellings split over five 9-20 storey blocks, 31 townhouses, and a community hub. All together this development will deliver much-needed affordable housing in Barking and community infrastructure.
We are really pleased that the construction is progressing well and is ahead of programme. The slip-formed construction towers took shape quickly with 8-10 days floor to floor circle. Cladding installation is progressing well for Block 5 and Block 4. Compared to traditional hand-set brickwork, precast concrete cladding can be installed quickly on site. This offers significant construction and programme advantages. Precast construction also offers a high degree of sustainability benefits such as reduced waste and improved material efficiency as well as high thermal performance.
Our use of BIM on this project has played a key part in the engineering of this project. It has fast-tracked the design process and helped to inform decision-making at the critical path of construction.
