Bermondsey Spa, London

Client: Hyde Housing Association
Project: Part of the Bermondsey Spa regeneration of a run-down area of East London which will ultimately provide 1,500 new homes, 6.5 acres of re-landscaped open space and a range of amenities including GP and dental surgeries, a pharmacy, shops, bars, restaurants, youth facilities and a play area.
Value:  £18m (Site D); £150m (total project).
Location: Old Jamaica Road, Bermondsey
Type of contract: Design & Build
Executive summary: Using H+H UK’s Thin Joint System for internal partition and separating walls instead of the drylined studwork and gypsum block originally specified, cut the programme time by an estimated two months on this large-scale project. H+H was able to provide technical and design advice on meeting the acoustic and thermal performance requirements in this mixed-use, multiple-occupancy building. Using Jumbo Blok with the Thin Joint System a sound reduction in excess of that required by Part E of the Building Regulations was achieved which contributed to the Code for Sustainable Homes rating for the building.
