Combining new residential with exciting new civic and community opportunities

One of the first of the mayor of London’s housing zones, the South Thamesmead development will create a new urban boulevard and town centre within the heart of Abbey Wood and South Thamesmead. The multi-phase development will link the new Abbey Wood Crossrail station to the south with the iconic Southmere Lake and new a civic and library building, which will form the hub of the new development.

Our job? Multidisciplinary engineering services, including the development of site-wide transport and waste strategies, flood risk assessments for residential developments and the new civic and library building, and interfacing with statutory bodies to enable development in heavily constrained areas such as buried river culverts and large-diameter storm water sewers. We also designed piled strategic drainage infrastructure and basement structures (considering high water table conditions).

With Phase 1 and the new civic and library building started and due for completion in 2021, the South Thamesmead redevelopment will deliver new homes and thousands of jobs. It will unlock existing cleared sites and create new commercial and community facilities.
