Carillion will start work immediately on a £90M residential twin tower block scheme in London following signing of a design and build contract with developer HUB Residential.

 

The Hoola London development in London’s Royal Docks will consist of a 24 storey tower alongside a 23 storey tower, providing 360 one, two and three bedroom residential apartments and one commercial unit. Construction on the glass clad towers is scheduled for completion by the Autumn of 2016.

 

Facilities provided by the scheme will include a residents’ lounge, gymnasium, and a business lounge. Landscaping on the 0.5 hectare site will incorporate communal gardens and play spaces. The towers will be set in their own landscaped garden on top of an artificial ‘hill’ that will conceal car parking and cycle spaces.

 

The project will have particularly strong environmental features including blue roofs, which have been developed to manage surface water run off and storage and energy sharing agreements to provide district heating.

 

Hoola London was designed by CZWG architects working alongside interior specialists Johnson Naylor. The gardens are the work of Churchman Landscape Architects.

 

Carillion had been appointed preferred bidder earlier this year, after planning permission was granted by the London Borough of Newham. Carillion said it will use the project to create 40 new apprenticeships.


Richard Howson, Carillion Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to have signed the contract to deliver the Hoola London development. Being chosen for this prestigious project reflects our reputation for reliable delivery, high standards of quality, value for money and sustainability, together with the strength of our long-term customer relationships.”
