2007: Westminster, INTEGER Glastonbury House

Flagship regeneration of a 22 storey residential tower to high standards of Intelligent & Green performance. Notable features include: a resident’s sky lounge created from the remodeling of a redundant rooftop plant room; fully openable glazed screens to balconies; a windskirt canopy to improve micro-climate around the entrance; full upgrade internally to ‘Decent Homes Plus’ standards . The key challenge was to minimise disruption to the elderly residents who remained in the block throughout. We addressed this by providing a duplicate building services riser, creating ‘hotel’ flats for temporary decant, using multi-skilled ‘A’ teams to complete all works on each flat in 3 weeks, and close liaison with a Residents Steering Group.

This pioneering project attracted considerable public interest – it was featured on BBC TV news, was visited by the Housing Minister Yvette Cooper and by Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott who described it enthusiastically as “a model for sustainable regeneration” at the Sustainable Communities summit in 2004.
