Case Study: Blackbird Hill


Catalyst Housing


Blackbird Hill, Wembley

Project value:


The site is based in Wembley, and consists of 34 apartments, 2 houses and a retail unit sited in the under croft of the building. The site also offers undercover parking for 38 cars, which is accessed from the entrance road and links up with the under croft under the building. The site is an Housing Association project, and is being built on behalf of the Catalyst Housing Group. The project is currently valued at over £4 million, and is the first of what we hope will be many in this new venture.

The project is also based on a design and build contract, and is again a first for us as a company. We have employed some particularly good architects and Engineers on this project, and it is our intention to shine with the design and development of the site. 

We have opted on a reinforced concrete structure to the under croft level and a steel framed structure above, which will carry on up to 5 floors high, and be finished with either a rendered finish coat or facing bricks.

We have been in contact with a number of extremely experienced consultants with regard to the overall design of the project, taking into account up to date insulation methods, electrical and mechanical designs, which include photovoltaic and solar panel assistance, which should give the prospective end users a really comfortable and economic home.

The development also has disabled units available with easy access from ground level, two lifts, and a good range of sizeable properties, which all link in with the required sizes for rentable properties from a Housing Association

The project is being run with the assistance of MEPK Architects and INHS Engineering and we are currently in the stage of demolition and archaelogy investigations.
