First Phase of London’s new The Ram Quarter to commence
It’s been announced that a huge new £170m regeneration scheme in Wandsworth, London known as The Ram Quarter will be built by construction firm Kier.
The Ram Quarter will be constructed in three phases with a contract value worth a total of around £600m delivering a large number of construction jobs and increasing demand for building supplies - there's definitely going to be a good few hard hats floating around this area for some time to come!
Kier will be responsible for the construction of a 36-storey tower in the new regeneration zone which will deliver 338 of the 661 new homes planned for the development.
The initial phase includes the redevelopment, refurbishment and remodelling of the existing grade II listed brewery buildings to create restaurants, boutique shops, cafés and bars, residential units as well as a micro-brewery and a brewery museum to ensure this new city quarter drawers in tourists and creates a community.
Enabling work will begin this month with the first phase of The Ram Quarter due for completion in early 2017.
Haydn Mursell, chief executive, said: “Kier has extensive experience in major mixed-use and regeneration projects in London and our breadth and depth of experience has positioned us to become a partner of choice for major city regeneration schemes.”
