Waterloo Housing Association
Project Description:
Construction of affordable and social housing units
Design Team:
Architect: Linc's Design Consultancy
Engineer: Ward & Cole Consulting Engineers

The site commencement of this major scheme across 5.9 acres uncovered significant Roman remains. Once realised, the programme was adjusted to ensure works progressed on other areas of the site whilst archaeological investigations were ongoing. In addition, poor ground conditions in localised areas involved a mixture of traditional trench and piled foundations.

The building envelope was traditional masonry with a combination of brick and render facades. The project specification also included rain harvesting methods and sustainable rain water drainage system (this was the first Council in England to implement and adopt a permeable road structure). In collaboration with Waterloo, phase one handover was marked by a very successful community fun day.
