Procured under the SCF framework, the largest project valued at £17m is at Kensal Road, where Willmott Dixon will build a complex of 37 homes above ground floor commercial space.  

The five-storey building will be complete in the autumn of 2022 and benefit from shared garden space and a podium deck with a large, landscaped terrace. 

Willmott Dixon will also deliver a £8.5m development at Hewer Street to provide a further 20 homes that will complete in winter 2022/23.

Both Kensal Road and Hewer Street projects include air source heat pumps that eliminate the need for gas, providing a sustainable heating solution.  

Roger Forsdyke, managing director for Willmott Dixon’s London & South region said: “We are delighted to be working with Kensington & Chelsea Council on their bold New Homes Delivery Programme, creating much-needed homes for local residents and providing a minimum of half for social rent.”
