Kennington Park One O’clock Club and Adventure Playground, was delivered for the London Borough of Lambeth. The £1.27m project is part of a larger residential re-development scheme taking place near Kennington Park, Lambeth.
The project formed part of a land swap with L&Q who are currently undertaking a residential development in the area. This project was delivered in order to maintain the facility for the community. The project was delivered via a negotiated Design and Build scheme using the NEC contract and procured through the SCAPE Minor Works Framework (this being a collaborative framework). The contract covered all the elements of the project from the groundworks, to the fit out furniture and everything in between.
The works consisted of 3 main elements – landscaping, an adventure playground space and a One O’Clock Club space. The project required regular liaison with L&Q Housing who were completing a development next door, which provided the only road access to the site.
Through this clear element of collaboration trusted relationships were formed. This projects and the collaboration has been recognised by being Highly Commeneded for the NEC Awards Small Project of the Year.
