Green light for CLT social housing in south east London


Thistleton Architects for housing provider Lewisham Homes, will be built entirely out of cross-laminated timber (CLT) and constructed offsite using cutting-edge manufacturing technology. It is the first CLT building devel- oped by Lewisham Homes. The scheme, which is 100 per cent social rent, is part of the local authority and Lewisham Homes’ borough-wide New Homes, Better Places programme, which will see the development of 500 homes for social rent. The development consists predominantly of family homes, with a range of housing types including duplexes, flats and wheelchair accessible homes, arranged around a landscaped courtyard. Andrew Waugh, director at Waugh Thistleton, said: “We are very excited to be delivering Lewisham Homes’ first CLT modular housing scheme. This scheme is an innovative use of a small site in south London that will deliver highly sustainable social homes for the people of Lewisham. “Building homes offsite speeds up delivery and reduces the impact of


P


construction on the local area. Homes constructed out of engineered timber using cutting edge technology are of a higher quality than those built using standard construction techniques, are better for the environ- ment, as timber is a renewable resource and stores carbon, and are quieter and more energy efficient.” The site, located in a residential area of Sydenham, is currently occupied by a vacant three-storey building containing predominantly studio apart- ments, previously used as a residential care facility. The building was deemed unsuitable for residential care and was decommissioned in 2014. The former care facility has been replaced by new build extra care facili- ties elsewhere in the borough and will be demolished to make way for the new council homes.
