Greenwich Millennium Village, Phase 3

Phase 3 of Greenwich Millennium Village, is a continuation of the new 1,746 home Greenwich community.

The project is delivered on a joint venture between Countryside and Taylor Wimpey. Phase 3 consists of 4 apartment blocks nestled around a collection of 23 town and courtyard houses.

The Challenge

Following our successful completion of the balustrade packages on Greenwich Millennium Village phase 1 with Willmott Dixon and phase 2 with Bouygues UK, phase 3 required a continuation of the same design intent to build on the vibrant appearance of the development. Phase 3 was delivered by Bennett Construction and Jestico + Whiles. This phase presented new and different challenges to previous phases as the project involved smaller buildings with a number of different detail types.

  1.  The town and courtyard houses were of masonry construction. This brick construction presents a challenge over concrete construction with the potential for an insecure fixing surface.
  2. Due to the different building types, there were a number of different fixing details required.

The Solution

We were appointed by Bennetts Construction for the supply and installation of the balustrade package. The B40 glass balustrade was proposed for the balustrade solution to the inset balconies and terraces. This was accompanied with B20 privacy screens to some terrace areas.
