East Thames and the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham (LBBD) are together renewing the eastern end of the Gascoigne Estate in Barking. They have appointed Bouygues UK to deliver the first 190 homes as part of Phase One of the project, as well as the construction of an energy centre. Contract value is approximately £41.5m.
The overall Gascoigne East masterplan calls for the creation of 1,575 new homes, a secondary and primary school, green spaces and community centre over the next nine years.
East Thames director of development Trevor Burns said: “Bouygues UK has a wealth of experience in delivering large scale regeneration projects and we’re confident that they will support us to deliver a very high quality product for Gascoigne East.”
Bouygues UK managing director for London housing, John Campion, said: “We have a strong presence in Barking & Dagenham through our existing relationship with the council, which has also seen us working on the mixed-use scheme on London Road and the Creative Ice House Quarter development at Abbey Road. We’re very happy to be working with East Thames and LBBD as part of the overall masterplan to regenerate Gascoigne Estate, as well as increasing our contribution to the wider regeneration of the borough as a whole.”
