Pre-fabricated affordable housing scheme containing 78 residential units

The Bourbon Lane scheme incorporates social, shared ownership and affordable housing in the centre of London.

Built using modern methods of construction the design incorporates an innovative cladding system. The cassettes came to site pre-glazed, insulated and with internal finishes in place. Only the larch cladding for the external face was fixed on site.

The scheme is also served by CHP plant located centrally to offer an environmentally friendly design solution and achieve a good ECO homes rating. This enables cheap energy to tenants and the opportunity to sell surplus power into the national grid.
