At any one time, our in-house surveying and maintenance team will be working on at least one if not more major refurbishment projects on our portfolio of houses, maisonettes and flats.
We are currently in a joint venture projects with the Education Funding Agency to build a brand-new school building for Hackney New Primary School on Kingsland Road. The school, which is double-form entry (50 children per year group) opened in September 2017 in temporary buildings. We anticipate that the children will move into their new building in April 2019.
We are also working on the refurbishment and development of 98 De Beauvoir Road. An Edwardian-era factory building, much like those that now make up the De Beauvoir Block, the project involves transforming the interiors into a standalone office block. Planning permission has been secured to add a new floor which means, when complete, the building will offer 7,000 sq ft of premium offices which offer the highest standard of workspace juxtaposed against attractive period features and details. The project is due for completion in early 2019.
