John Rowan and Partners hand over ‘former home’ of West Ham United
John Rowan and Partners has handed over the final block of affordable housing units at Upton Gardens, the redevelopment of West Ham United’s former football ground.
Upton Gardens is a significant mixed-used regeneration scheme on the site of the former Boleyn Football Ground, home to West Ham United Football Club for over 100 years.
Barratt London has been transforming the site into 842 new homes. As part of this we have supported the delivery of over 200 new homes for Future New Home, London Borough of Newham’s Housing Association. These much needed homes are a mix of Affordable Rented and Shared Ownership properties.
We have been involved in the project since 2016 providing Project Management, Quantity Surveying and Site Inspection services. We delivered the penultimate block of affordable housing units back in September last year and have now successfully handed over the final one to our client.
Rob Worster, Employer’s Agent/Quantity Surveyor at John Rowan and Partners, has been working on the project for the past four years and commented “The whole development is now looking like the original CGIs first produced. It has been very rewarding to see how the project has progressed over the years”.
Dominic Cherry, Associate Partner and project lead added “We are proud to have worked alongside Barratt London and Future New Home to deliver affordable housing at this site of historical significance and importance to West Ham Football Club and it’s supporters. We are pleased to have been involved in this project that will benefit all of the local community while preserving the legacy of the neighbourhood.”
