Polyteck and Empyrean team up on £50m London mixed use scheme
Polyteck Group, a leading construction and facilities management business, has partnered with Empyrean Developments to develop new homes and commercial workspace at Bernard Works and Norman Road, adjacent to the Tottenham Hale (Argent) regeneration scheme.
The joint venture will see Polyteck and Empyrean work together to create 87 new homes and 12 live/work units in the first phase of the two-part development.
In addition, there will be 25,000 sq ft of commercial workspace, which has already been let on a long lease to social enterprise scheme The Mill Co Project.
This diverse mixed-use scheme is aimed at bringing young creatives and entrepreneurs to the area. The live/work spaces are designed to incorporate both professional and personal lives, with local people from the Tottenham area prioritised for tenancy.
The complex will consist of a series of brick and steel framed structures that will house a combination of established companies and temporary artisan studio workshops for tenants looking to take advantage of the site’s close proximity to open natural areas and the main high street.
As part of the build, Polyteck will be using a panelised system for a modular build that will be combined with traditional units. The company will also utilise off-site construction techniques using light steel construction, combined with insulation products which will ensure a fast and efficient build – both in terms of cost and energy usage.
These methods have been tailored to the London landscape – considering cost and space restrictions around transporting volumetric components in the city.
John Polycarpou, chairman, Polyteck, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Empyrean Developments on this project. As a leading London business, we are experienced in helping Council’s develop dynamic and modern builds which enhance not only the immediate area but can have a positive impact on the community as a whole.”
Supported by excellent transport connections – Seven Sisters is the nearest Tube station – the development is in an area of intense change and development.
The project is due to commence in October 2018 and will be completed in October 2020.
