Cobalt Place – Surrey Lane, Battersea

Project Outline: Astins was contracted by Lend Lease to provide SFS, drylining, partitions and ceilings for Cobalt Place on Surrey Lane, which will comprise 104 homes and will be arranged across two buildings of five and six storeys respectively. Lend Lease will also build new state of the art modern educational facilities for the local Saint John Bosco College, as well as new community facilities nearby. Saint John Bosco College is a joint venture of the RC Southwark Diocese and the Salesians of Don Bosco and will see 1,050 places created for local students age 11 – 16 in addition to a sixth form for over 200 students.

Main Contractor: Lend Lease
Project Value: £2.7m
Commencement Date: September 2014
Sector: Mixed Development - Education and Residential
Scope of Work: SFS, drylining, partitions and ceilings

Astins Benefit: The project consists of two main sites, a residential build and new school. We delivered a programme and resource plan that enabled collaboration and sharing between both sites, which in turn saved our client money. We also added over 6% of value engineered design solutions by working with Lend Lease and their professional consultants to focus on achieving performance in the most practical and economical ways. These solutions are further supported by our in house design team and strong partnerships with our manufacturers.
