Contractor appointed for SW11 estate regeneration

We have appointed contractor John Sisk & Son Ltd for the first phase of the £120m regeneration of the St John’s Hill estate in Clapham Junction.

Designed by Hawkins/Brown architects, the total development will be delivered in three phases, and will provide 528 new homes (up from the existing 353) in a mix of 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom apartments. There will be 279 affordable homes (social rent and intermediate housing) and 249 for private sale.

Provision has been made for 13,600 square metres of open space, a new public route from Clapham Junction station to Wandsworth Common, commercial space and a new community hub.

Works are due to begin in the spring, with phase 1 due for completion in the summer of 2016. Sisk have committed to providing around 60 new apprenticeships for local people across the three phases of the project.

Peabody’s Development Manager at St John’s Hill, Cathy Bacon, said:

"We are looking forward to working with Sisk on the regeneration of St John’s Hill, which will bring to life our 21st-century vision, and will have a wide reaching, positive impact on the wider community."

Mike Higgins, Director (Southern Region) at Sisk, said:

"We are delighted to be selected by Peabody to work on this project, which will provide high quality, affordable homes, where people will be proud to live. We have been building excellence for over 150 years, and are proud to work with an organisation with a strong history, and a commitment to building thriving communities across the capital."
