Agar Grove Estate

A regeneration project in the London Borough of Camden

  • London, United Kingdom

    London, United Kingdom

Providing 493 homes through the phased redevelopment of an estate built in 1966

Agar Grove is the largest council community investment programme (CIP) scheme to date, as well as the largest Passivhaus scheme in the United Kingdom. This truly community-oriented project will deliver new high-quality homes for existing residents—it will also create rented, shared ownership, and private homes to make better spatial use of the estate to meet Camden's future housing needs.

For this project, we supported the architect on engineering constraints, carrying out forensic engineering studies on the existing retained tower block and providing multidisciplinary technical support for the overall master plan. This creates more livable spaces between buildings, allowing people to move easily across, through and within the site. For the client to address fuel poverty issues in the borough, it was also important to minimise the heating and electrical demand for new units. We also provided structural, civil, transport, geotechnical, noise, air quality and flood risk services.

The project was granted planning permission in April 2014. Upon completion, the project will create a safe, high-quality family neighborhood. Residents will have bright new homes with good space standards, built to deliver low heating bills and comfortable living.
