Creek Road, Greenwich named “The Architects’ Choice” at the Brick Awards
Creek Road in Greenwich has been named “The Architects’ Choice” at this year’s prestigious Brick Awards. Designed by BPTW for Peabody, the development is a new commercial-residential scheme.
Tully De’Ath was involved from pre-planning, assisting to release this socially sensitive site, through detailed design and construction phases for the development of 80 units across five blocks up to 6 storeys, plus localised basements.
During pre-planning works Tully De’Ath’s team undertook appraisals of existing buildings, party walls and construction sequencing to assist getting the scheme to site. Close negotiations with DLR were also key due to the proximity of tunnels to the East of the site.
Subsequently, Tully De’Ath undertook detailed design and building out the scheme with a ‘continental’ approach involving a full RC wall system atop a transfer slab at 1st floor with commercial below. This has required a full rethink of the Engineering approach to design, finite element analysis and reinforcement detailing, all in close coordination with the Contractor’s experienced team.
The Architects’ Choice Award is an exciting opportunity for finalists’ peers en masse to appraise shortlisted projects. Congratulations to the whole project team!
