Surplus NHS land will be transformed into a mix of flats and three-bedroom maisonettes in four new residential buildings, ranging from six to fifteen storeys.
The development will be connected to Network’s existing Luma development, which houses many NHS staff, creating a large communal garden for all residents to enjoy.
The historic former refectory building, once part of a Victorian workhouse, will be retained and fully refurbished.
Designed by architect Haworth Tomkins, the development is also designed to minimise energy consumption and be highly sustainable. Solar panels, air source heat pumps and low energy LED lighting throughout have all been incorporated into the scheme.
Buildings feature highly insulated external envelopes to minimise heat loss, helping the development to surpass the carbon reduction targets set for new homes by the Greater London Authority.
Tim Carpenter, who was recently appointed as managing director for construction at Durkan, said: “This exciting project will transform the current site and is a key part of a wider regeneration plan for Old Oak and Park Royal, an area set for major positive change and to become a transport hub where High Speed 2 will meet Crossrail.”
