CSC Screeding Ltd is privileged to have been part of one of London’s largest regeneration schemes, the Barking Riverside Project. We were awarded the contract to install 5500sm of 60mm FlexiDry F2/14 day dry Fiberscreed over underfloor heating for the Rivergate School. The school which will be at the heart of the eco-friendly development is scheduled to be completed and open for classes by September 2011. The project is being carried out on behalf of Neilcott Construction Ltd.
The Barking Riverside Project which is planned on 150 acres along the North bank of River Thames is expected to transform the largest brownfield site in London into a sustainable urban riverside community accommodating 10,800 homes and 26,000 people by 2020. This innovative development scheme will feature a mix of housing types and tenures and will have its own host of local transport, healthcare facilities, schools, retail outlets, leisure areas and play spaces. Upon completion, the development which is part of the East London Green Grid will also serve to reconnect the neighborhoods north of the A13 with the River Thames.
The construction of the first phase of the Riverside project, the Rivergate community centre is currently underway and is expected to reach completion later this year. The Rivergate school which is a part of the community centre will have 630 places for 4 to 11 year olds and about 78 places for 3 year olds. As part of an eco-friendly development, the school will have specially designed green roofs and landscaped grounds with reed beds to encourage wild life. Only sustainable building materials are being used to ensure a low carbon foot print.
The Rivergate Community Centre will also house residential flats, a Metropolitan police station, and places of worship, Community Development Trust Offices and local retail units centered round a public square. The construction of the community centre and the school is being carried out on a priority basis to ensure that the community facilities are complete before the residential units are built.
With FlexiDry, the screed with proven track records for quick drying time and supreme quality, CSC Screeding Ltd hope to provide the perfect screeding solution where time and quality are the priority.
