Summer outing to Kidbrooke Village and Royal Arsenal Riverside

For the CZWG annual summer outing, we arranged to visit our recently completed and ongoing works as part of Berkeley Homes’ regeneration schemes at Kidbrooke Village in Greenwich and Royal Arsenal Riverside in Woolwich.

The tour began at the marketing suite at Kidbrooke Village. Delivered in partnership with with the Royal Borough of Greenwich and the Mayor of London, this housing-led regeneration scheme is transforming this area of London and will create a new community of over 4000 homes.

Partners Piers Gough and Luigi Beltrandi explained Berkeley’s aspirations to create a distinctive and green regeneration of the previously derelict estate. Phase 4, the first three of nine blocks designed by CZWG, have been built and detailed planning achieved for the remaining six (Phase 5). Our team took a tour through the completed phases and on to the current phases on site. We then enjoyed a walk through Sutcliff Park and Cator Park via the newly opened Depot pub before congregating for a sumptuous lunch at Copper and Ink in Blackheath.

Our final stop was to visit the Royal Arsenal Riverside scheme in Woolwich. Previously part of the MOD estate, Berkeley Homes’ mixed-use redevelopment of the old Royal Arsenal armament estate will provide over 3000 new homes. Pavilion Square is the third phase of the redevelopment, designed by CZWG and completed earlier this year. It provides a central block to the masterplan and symmetrically frames the Laboratory Pavilions, two of the oldest buildings of the Royal Arsenal.

Our thanks to the team at Berkeley Homes for hosting us. We enjoyed a most memorable and insightful day - a fantastic opportunity to visit our buildings alongside peers who had worked at various stages on the design and delivery.
