Our client, Brick by Brick (BxB) are a multi-award winning private development company that was founded by Croydon Council in 2016. Originally established to accelerate Croydon Council’s delivery of 1000 much needed new homes by 2019, BxB are now working on 2000 homes across multiple sites throughout the Borough and aim to deliver 50% of these as affordable for either part buy or rent. The sites themselves tend to be old garage sites, car parks, vacant buildings or infill sites on estates. BxB’s approach is novel in that they are committed to delivering innovative, exciting developments that are beautifully designed inside and out to create places where people want to live while also maximising returns from their development activity to benefit residents of the Borough.
Faithful+Gould is closely supporting BxB with the delivery of this programme, providing a range of professional services including Project Management, Cost Management, Health and Safety and Party Wall. Our projects vary considerably, from logistically complex garage infill sites of 6 units, multi-building developments incorporating commercial and community spaces, high-rise apartments and large mixed tenure sites with up to 157 units. Modern methods of construction have been adopted to accelerate the construction programme where considered suitable.
