New Projects Update

Ash has recently been awarded some new projects. Take a look at a few below.


Camley Street Natural Park, Kings Cross

Client: London Wildlife Trust

Value:      £1.4m

PM/QS:      Huntley Cartwright

Architect:   LUC Erect Architecture 

Duration:     36 weeks

Ash have been appointed to deliver a new visitor centre for the London Wildlife Trust. The new build timber frame building with external works will be in keeping with the surrounding area and natural habitat. As the site is in such close proximity to major transport links such as St Pancras and King Cross Station we will be urging staff and subcontractors to utilise public transport where possible to reduce carbon footprint. We will also be looking into measures the site can take to cause minimal disruption to the surrounding wildlife and how we can support the area. 

The Meath, Godalming 

Client:      The Meath Epilepsy Trust

Value:     £180,000

Architect:     Nye Saunters Architects

Duration:     16 weeks

This project will see the internal conversion of offices to form a new single-story self-contained two-bed flat. Existing concrete stairs will be removed to form a new opening in the structural wall, and new timber stairs will be provided to access the basement. Additionally, a new window opening will be installed to the existing single-storey extension, along with new stud work walls within the flat and associated M&E works and decorations throughout. The project will take place with the rest of the trust remaining fully operational so Ash will be taking additional care as not to disrupt the sensitive nature of the work being done at the trust or the residents.

Herbert Road, Plumstead 

Client:      South London Church Fund & Southwark Diocesan Board of Finance

Value:     £1.1m

Architect:     Molyneux Architects
