Background

Located in Newham and formerly home to the West Ham United Football Club’s stadium, known as the Boleyn Ground, this exciting scheme will contribute to major regeneration in the area.

Key project information

The proposals provide 842 new homes situated across 15 buildings, together with new open space, commercial space and community space.

The proposals consist of:

  • 842 new homes, of which 211 are affordable
  • A new 559sqm community space, which will accommodate the Council’s new library
  • Two commercial units
  • Open space and play space, including publicly accessible spaces
  • 1,173 cycle spaces

How we assisted

The scheme has both national and local significance, given its size and historic association with West Ham United. We are responsible for handling highly sensitive demolition, construction and stakeholder communications and has actively engaged with the local community in order to inform residents about construction progress. We produce and distribute quarterly construction newsletters, manage and maintain the community website and associated emails and arrange all construction liaison meetings.

Outcome

We continue to manage all construction communications and are currently liaising with the London Borough of Newham, the landscape architects and Barratt London to help deliver an arts strategy across the site.
