Rund’s Clerk of Works services contribute to award-winning Vic Johnson House project
We are thrilled to join Gateway Housing Association as they celebrate winning ‘Best Older People’s Housing Development (Urban)’ for their Vic Johnson House scheme at the Inside Housing Development Awards 2021.
Vic Johnson House, up against eight schemes in its category, took home the coveted award at the ceremony that recognises excellence in building exemplary homes and communities.
We provided Clerk of Works services at Vic Johnson House during its redevelopment, helping enhance the building as a highly desirable 100% affordable housing scheme. Works involved the retaining much of the original building and the creation of 32 new apartments and refurbishment of 24 existing apartments. Vic Johnson House is dedicated to people aged over 55, with high-quality amenity spaces, including a lounge, library, saloon, and gardens supporting the residents’ health, wellbeing and quality of life.
Our role was crucial in ensuring all works were carried out in line with strict specifications, ensuring every apartment adhered to only the highest quality build standards. Our specialist team also undertook thorough Fire Stopping inspections to identify and mitigate any risks throughout the project lifespan.
Paul Belfield, Director at Rund Partnership commented: “Vic Johnson House is truly deserving of its award, as so much work went into making it the exceptional quality development it is today. Attention to detail and quality control were fundamental, with all works being carried out within strict timeframes and in line with specifications to minimise disruption to existing residents.
“We applaud everyone involved in the Vic Johnson House scheme for all their contributions in making it an award-winning development, which sets the bar high for affordable housing for over 55s in central London.”
