Hambrook House was previously used by Lambeth Council as a housing office, and is part of a wider development of the council’s estate by Muse, which includes refurbishing and remodelling the Town Hall and creating new council offices.

Galliford Try will construct a tower block of 94 flats on the site where the old Hambrook House previously stood. The height of the new building ranges from six to 14 storeys and communal amenity spaces are provided at both ground and roof levels.

Galliford Try’s contract award builds on its existing relationship with Muse, Morgan Sindall’s urban regeneration arm Muse, having previously built the Chatham Place development in Reading and the One Smithfield Square project in Manchester for it.

Notting Hill Housing, a partner for Galliford Try in a number of schemes across London, is also involved in the project, managing the 48 new affordable homes created by the development.

The development is scheduled to be completed in September 2018.
