Bennett Construction have recently been appointed to deliver phase 3 of the Greenwich Millennium Village Development in London which consists of 83 no apartments split between four independent apartment blocks and 23 no town and courtyard houses which are divided between four individual plots and the development is being built to the Code for Sustainable Homes, Level 4.
Greenwich Millennium Village is unique in that it is home to a thriving and established community and has been described as one of the most exciting and innovative residential neighbourhoods in Europe.
The development is located within the heart of the Greenwich Millennium Village masterplan which is the first of the Government’s Millennium Communities, lies at the southern end of the 300 acre Greenwich Peninsula and will comprise of more than 2,700 homes and commercial space. Part of the remarkable Thames Gateway regeneration project, GMV is an ambitious mixed-use development, where innovation and efficiency are fundamental and is currently considered as being part of the largest regeneration project of its kind to be undertaken in London.
This is a challenging project with an extremely tight programme and required a fast track construction delivery model to be implemented to ensure we achieve and deliver this development in line with our client's requirements. As a consequence of this mode Two tower cranes were ereceted on site, one with a 60m jib and the other with a 40m jib, both of which have been strategically placed taking into account a magnitude of factors but most notably having the capacity to feed each individual plot at any time, as in peak construction mode we will be working on all eight plots simultaneously.
