Contractors are being invited to bid for packages of work on a £40M mixed used scheme planned for the Isle of Dogs in east London.

 

Enabling works on this 45 Millharbour scheme are currently under way, while a 48 week construction period will see 138 residential units built over 12 floors in addition to creation of commercial space on the ground floor.

 

Property development firm iWS Group was recently appointed as construction manager to procure and manage the basement construction, piling and concrete works at the site.

 

In total there will be approximately 13,221 sq. m. of residential accommodation and a further further 805 sq. m. of commercial space as part of the scheme. There will also be a public amenity space running on the ground floor between Millharbour Road and the nearby dock.

 

The design is in compliance with the requirements of the London Plan, BREEAM and the Code for Sustainable Homes.

 

Keith Taylor, Managing Director of iWS Group, said: “I am delighted that iWS is taking on the construction management at 45 Millharbour and we are working closely with the design team to finalise the full tender.

 

“To be completed with the help of specialist package contractors, this will be a prime example of the benefits of using a fully integrated construction and project management solution in development projects.”

 

Mr Taylor added: “The proximity of the site to the River Thames, excellent transport links and enriching trade history make this is a prime opportunity for the development of a brand new community, which will also present numerous business benefits to the development team.”

 

Clarson Goff Management will act as project manager, employer’s agent and CDM Service provider on the scheme, while Jackson Rowe will act as cost consultants. These firms as well as iWS are all part of the Front3 Group.
