The Dearneside factory is busy getting balconies ready to transport to London for the Elephant Park project.

The Elephant Park project is a new residential project for Lendlease. The development will house 3,000 new homes, of which 25% will be for affordable living. The site also includes 2 acres of park and space for over 50 new shops, restaurant and cafes. Dearneside is working with FKN the facade contractor and will be supplying the balconies on the residential tower.

Interestingly, Elephant Park is set to be the UK’s first Climate Positive development when complete in 2025. It is designed to create a new standard in city living with its 2 acres of green spaces, 1,200 trees, over 3,000 new cycle spaces and energy efficient homes. The development will have its own energy hub, utilising natural gas to deliver zero-carbon, affordable heat and hot water to residents and businesses across Elephant Park.

Goodluck Hope Development – East London

Article added:

Dearneside is pleased to announce that we have recently been awarded the Balcony and Architectural Metalwork Package on the prestigious Ballymore Goodluck Hope Development in East London. We have already been working with Ballymore for numerous years on the neighbouring London City Island project.

Goodluck Hope is an industrially inspired island development, revitalizing the East London Docklands riverside. Located near both the financial district of Canary Wharf and the creative Shoreditch and Hackney districts, the development is in an ideal central location.

The plan is to build over 800 new homes, 2,000 sq m of commercial space, 235 sq m of education floorspace, a brewery, and a restored Grade II-listed Orchard Dry Dock.

Previously the island was a hive of industry, housing a number of industrial firms from coopers to shipbuilders and the East India Dock Company. The aim of the development is to showcase this great industrial heritage through design and materials used.

At the heart of the development is Douglass Tower. The 30-storey building, which has been designed by architects Allies and Morrison, is split into a series of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
