Tooting High Street

London Borough of Wandsworth

We inherited a Planning consent for 29 residential apartments and circa 5,000ft2 of commercial floor space in a modern new build development on Tooting High Street, Wandsworth, South London. The client wanted us to develop the technical design based on a JCT Traditional form of contract, delivering the works through to conpletion. Our technical information has been generated using Vectorworks 3-d BIM software, facilitating the production of the tender documents for a construction start date of February 2024.

The building has a linear configuration, based on the site constraints, with two blocks extending the full widht of the site to create a central landscaped courtyard. Two separate staircases are created to reduce travel distances.

This linear nature inspired the Architectural design, with brick and stone claddings separated in horizontal banding which wraps around the top floors and linear cantileveed balconies facing the courtyard landscaped space.
