The joint venture between Countryside and Taylor Wimpey in association with the Mayor of London defines Greenwich Millennium Village as one of the most exciting and innovative residential neighbourhoods in Europe.
Soundcraft’s successful completion of this landmark project at Greenwich Millennium Village (GMV) not only amplifies the company’s impressive portfolio across the UK’s capital, but is also testament to its capabilities, product strengths and extensive experience for delivering on high-profile eco-aware developments.
Soundcraft was appointed by leading contractor Bennett Construction to undertake supply at phases five and six for the GMV project, which encompasses more than 2,700 homes together with mixed-use commercial space at its 300-acre site located on London’s highly desirable Greenwich Peninsula.
Working closely with award-winning architects Jestico + Whiles and supply chain partner Senior Architectural Systems (SAS), the Soundcraft team applied its expertise to provide Secured by Design Aluminium Integrity Doors for communal entrance doors to all apartments, together with Pure Fold Doors to high-specification town houses, with security rated large pane door sets and glass-to-glass corners.
Fundamental for the project’s architectural design was a strong focus on innovative and energy efficiency concepts, both skilfully provided by Soundcraft to ensure light-filled living space, enabling the outdoor and indoor area to become one space with courtyard gardens.
GMV is part of the Thames Gateway regeneration project for sustainable growth and is considered to be the largest of its kind undertaken in London. With emphasis on community and amenities alongside its prime position on the Thames, project plans incorporate a new health centre, school, shops and leisure facilities together with more than 50 acres of green parkland, 12,000 planted trees, lakes, ponds and access to the adjoining a four-acre Ecology Park.
