Former Eltron Works Site, Croydon

Former Eltron Works Site, Croydon


The Oakwood Group purchased this former warehouse and office building with the benefit of detailed planning permission for 16 houses and 43 apartments. The adjoining site was purchased on a conditional basis and planning permission was then secured for a further 21 apartments.

The Oakwood Group entered into a lump sum design and build contract with AmicusHorizon to deliver the construction under a package deal arrangement.

Seventeen of the residential apartments were delivered for shared ownership, with the balance delivered for affordable rent.

Three of the apartments were provided to a bespoke wheelchair design brief in conjunction with LB Croydon’s Occupational Therapist and Housing Enabling team.

All of the homes were designed to meet the Building Research Establishment’s Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 Rating and twenty per-cent of the predicted annual energy consumption of the dwellings is generated from on-site renewable energy sources, principally photovoltaic panels.

The construction was being procured via a design and build contract, managed under a JCT Standard Form of Building Contract.

Construction commenced in Quarter 3 2012 with completed in Quarter 2 2014.
