EQUANS in pre-construction agreement for £21m Southwark Council scheme

EQUANS, (the new name for ENGIE’s regeneration and services-led activities), has signed a Pre-contract Services Agreement (PCSA) with Southwark Council, for a redevelopment scheme aimed at supporting the delivery of high-quality new council homes in the London borough.

The value of the full contract will be circa £21m.

EQUANS has been appointed to demolish the existing Florian residential blocks at the Sceaux Gardens Estate in Camberwell, as well as carrying out surveys and design work as part of the PCSA.  The council will also be demolishing the Marie Curie garages site and Racine site on the estate, to deliver 79 new council homes across four blocks.  

The development progresses Southwark Council’s bold commitment to provide 2,500 new council homes across the borough, by May 2022.  At least 50% of the new homes at Sceaux Gardens will be offered to local tenants in housing need; and the remaining homes are to be allocated to people on the council’s wider housing waiting list.

As part of the work, EQUANS will also support with improvements across the wider estate.

We have a long and successful partnership with Southwark Council and are pleased to be supporting their ambitious goal to introduce much-needed new council homes in the borough. “This particular scheme epitomises the concept of regeneration – allowing us to take unappealing and disused garages to turn the site into attractive, high-quality homes for families that need them most.
Gary Clay Regeneration Director for EQUANS UK & Ireland
We’re delighted to be working with EQUANS on the first stages of this fantastic development, which will provide 79 desperately-needed new council homes for Southwark residents. We will also be making improvements to the estate which will give a boost to the local community here.
Councillor Stephanie Cryan Cabinet Member for Council Homes and Homelessness

Work is now underway at the site and will progress in phases, with an anticipated completion of late 2023.
