Ardmore has landed a £75m main works contract at the Hackney Yards development in East London.
The job, awarded by Notting Hill Genesis, will see the contractor design and build four residential and commercial blocks around Hackney Wick station.
The eight-storey brick-clad blocks, split across three sites, will provide 190 affordable homes in a mix of tenures and more than 4,000 square metres of commercial space.
The commercial element will include retail and community facilities, leisure space, low-cost work areas, landscaped public realm, roof terraces and podiums.
Ardmore said the appointment built on the firm’s experience of delivering major residential-led schemes, such as the recently completed 387-unit Phase 4a of Battersea Power Station. It was also awarded a £200m residential scheme in Kensington earlier this year.
“Over the past few months, we’ve built a strong and reliable team for this project, and we are sure to bring the buildings in line with the highest safety standards, without any compromise in quality,” said Ardmore director James Byrne.
John Hughes, Notting Hill Genesis group director of development and deputy chief executive, said the appointment represented a significant milestone for the Hackney Yards development, which is being delivered in partnership with the London Legacy Development Corporation.
“We look forward to continuing our collaborative alliance with Ardmore as we begin works on this 100 per cent affordable tenure scheme in the heart of Hackney Wick, one of London’s most exciting and dynamic locations,” he said.
Work is due to begin in March.
