Background

A landmark 850,000 ft² residential led mixed-use development, as part of wider regeneration scheme

This work was part of a major regeneration project between the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and the Greater London Authority to clear run-down brownfield sites, remediate contamination and upgrade the local housing stock for the area.

The Ice House Quarter, originally known as Abbey Road, is a major mixed-use development in Barking, which has delivered 278 new residences along with employment and commercial space.

Our Role

A joint venture with Bouygues Development and London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, Stace provided Employers Agent and CDM-C services on this major development, with a strong focus on sustainability.

Our Impact

This development was completed in two stages. Phase I included a mixed-used scheme to provide 134 affordable dwellings and ground floor retail units, specifically designed for creative industries. Phase II provided a further 144 residential units with associated underground car parking and external landscaping areas.

Abbey Road is a landmark development and seeks to incorporate a wide range of initiatives to encourage future residents and workers to adopt more sustainable lifestyles and transport options.
