The Project Team
Redrow Homes Limited – Developer
Redrow is one of the largest and leading housebuilders in Britain and has been delivering high quality homes for over 45 years.
Redrow is currently developing up to 4,000 new homes as part of our Colindale Gardens scheme in Barnet.
Redrow in Barnet – Case study
This is not Redrow’s first involvement in the London Borough of Barnet. Many of Redrow’s London team are based in Barnet where we are currently developing Colindale Gardens. This development will provide 4,000 new homes and key amenities including a primary school, green spaces, nurseries and supermarket, facilities such as doctors, cafes and a communal gym.
Redrow, where possible, is delivering through local supply chain and residents:
- Employing locally, sharing vacancies with Barnet Council’s Skills Team
- 10,000+ hours of L&D delivered since July 2015
- 10 apprenticeships completed in 2017
- Eight local pupils undertook work experience, 57 days in total
- ‘The Redrow Aspirational Award’ at Middlesex University
- Working with the DWP and Barnet & Southgate College to run an apprenticeships academy
Redrow’s long term objectives at Colindale include the delivery of up to 146 apprenticeships, 142 jobs for unemployed Barnet residents, 189 work experience placements and site visits for over 1,000 local students.
This shows how committed Redrow is to developing Barnet, and helping to improve the borough.
TP Bennett – Architects
Redrow has appointed TP Bennett as its architect to design the proposals for 679 High Road.
TP Bennett is a London based architectural, urban and interior design practice which is dedicated to designing high quality homes and buildings. The firm has won a number of prestigious awards for their work, including multiple projects across London.
Ealing Filmworks – Case study
TP Bennett is currently working on a mixed-use development in Ealing for 209 apartments, 8 screen cinema, retail and restaurants.
The site is heavily constrained, straddling two conservation areas within Ealing town centre. Through careful engagement with stakeholders we developed a masterplan that responds to each of these conditions individually whilst maintaining a coherence centrally where all of the buildings converge on the main square. Our proposals create direct links to surrounding streets, following local policy guidance. This improves permeability and connectivity within Ealing town centre and allows us to create an exciting mixed use destination within this new town square.
Exterior Architecture – Landscape Architects
Exterior Architecture is an award-winning team of creative and innovative Landscape Architects. They work on a range of projects including master planning, public realm, green spaces and infrastructure, mixed use and residential developments, leisure, and resorts.
Friary Park, Ealing – Case study
Exterior Architecture worked on the landscape maseterplan for Friary Park in Ealing. Focusing on the variety of activities, characteristics and spaces experienced in a park, they this applied to the design of the public realm and inspire the programming of the wider landscape.
A key principle for the redesign was to reduce the need for car access and prioritising pedestrians, including the pedestrianisation of Friar’s Walk, in order to establish a useable, programmable, high quality public realm within the heart of the site. They used Transport for London’s ‘Healthy Streets’ & ‘people first principles’ to put people’s health at the heart of decision marking.
