276 new council homes have replaced an unpopular high-rise estate, using a new asset-based funding model with no reliance on subsidy. A traditional street plan and smart modulation of house types and details has delivered award-winning quality within a tight budget and programme.

PTE provided a full service from concept to completion.

“These are great homes, and in a climate where rising land values and diminishing grant make it very difficult for lower income households to find homes in London, the fact that the scheme is 100% affordable is impressive.”

Andrew Beharrell, Senior Partner, PTE

"The success of a good job is when all parties involved, from subcontractors, consultants, client, funders, end users and all involved walk away happy. I am pleased to be able to advise that we believe that Thames View East has ticked all the boxes. This has been a very good project."

William Jerram, Director, Jerram Falkus
