LRA (LRA Retinue), for HSBC Pension Trust/LaSalle IM/Arcus PCD/Native in alignment with Croydon’s Regeneration Team successfully completed the transformation of a former office site as part of the wider Ruskin Square regeneration. The new building retained an existing concrete frame to 16 storeys (for sustainability), whilst it is almost entirely new in every way for all of its 23 storeys; the ground floor is partly retail with the other 22 storeys as a BTR / PRS model. Of the 183 residential units all are either Part M4 2 or 3. The building is 35% more efficient than standard; using a CHP plant with the potential to connect to Croydon’s renewable energy network in the future. The building is also a ‘Golden Thread’ exemplar being executed using a BIM L2/3 procedure. It is now an internationally award-winning building.
