White City residential scheme starts on site
Waterman is delighted to see the Centre House development, in west London’s White City, start on site having recently secured planning approval.
Situated adjacent to both Westfield and the White City Living project, the site will be totally transformed by St James’ development. Centre House comprises 527 new homes across a curved crescent and two landmark buildings of up to 32 storeys, complemented by extensive landscaping and leisure areas along with 10,000 ft2 of commercial space for Imperial College London. The project will offer 185 affordable homes, which will be allocated to Imperial College staff and other key workers.
Located close to White City’s Zone 2 Underground Station, the Pilbrow & Partners-designed Centre House will form part of the wider ten-acre White City Living regeneration. This major scheme will provide more than 2,300 homes set in eight acres of parks and gardens, alongside world-class retail, entertainment, education, culture and commercial facilities.
Waterman’s team are the CDM advisors for the project. Waterman Health and Safety attend regular Design Team Meetings, prepare Pre-Construction Information and a combined Residual Risk Register. Including additional ad-hoc safety advice, review of the Principal Contractors Construction Phase Plan and input into the Health and Safety File.
Tara Fry, Waterman’s Technical Director, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed as CDM Advisor for this exciting scheme and are pleased to see works commence on site. Centre House will revitalise the site with high-quality homes and landscaping, making it an attractive part of London where people want to live and work.”
With construction work now underway, completion of the first homes is anticipated by 2024.
