The Battersea Phase 4A development forms part of the main Battersea Power Station redevelopment in South London. The scheme comprises 386no. units ranging in height from 8 to 18 storeys. Consisting of 7 separate blocks the development also includes includes 12,000sq ft of flexible business work space, a 17,000sq ft ground floor medical centre and over 60,000sq ft of public realm.
Design development and coordination were key to delivery on this project and a fully developed BIM process was implemented to ensure a high level of collaboration between the team and specialist sub-contractors. Due to the works package procurement programmes weekly workshops were initiated to review packages as they developed and ensure timely issue of decisions and information.
The buildings comprise an in-situ concrete frame and floors with a highly complex façade consisting of brick, concrete / GRC cladding, aluminium rainscreen cladding and curtain walling. Developing information for construction involved close liaison with manufacturers, suppliers and subcontractors with TODD taking the lead in coordinating all of the individual packages.
As the project includes social, affordable and accessible housing close collaboration was also required with a number of additional stakeholders including the Housing Association organisation and occupational therapists.
The challenging project programme required a high degree of internal project management and programming to ensure information release dates were achieved.
The project is currently on site and schedule for completion in summer 2022.
