Practical completion for the public realm at Parkview

After ten months on site and over four years in the pipeline, our overhaul of the public realm at Parkview, South Thamesmead, has achieved practical completion. It is hard to fully appreciate the changes without a ‘before and after’ (coming soon), but the transformation from grey to green has changed the mood of this iconic Brutalist estate entirely.

It feels fantastic to finish on site on a high, after several obstacles earlier on in the project. There have been a lot of glowing comments already, both from the client, Peabody, as well as the local residents.

Well done to the landscape team for everyone’s hard efforts since the project was first conceived, and for the urban design studio’s early input too. Thanks as well to the landscape contractor, idverde, who was a gem to work with.

We'll be getting more photos soon, so watch this space!
