Plot R5 sits to the North West of Zone R, fronting the new Cubit Park and is designed by Stirling Prize winning architects MacCreanor Lavington.

The building has three distinct elements – the North block houses 63 general needs social rented (affordable) apartments and 40 shared equity units, the West block houses 40 supported housing (extra care) apartments, and the South block houses 65 private apartments.

The accommodation sits above a ground floor of mixed commercial space and the general needs social rented apartments have access to a private courtyard. The shared equity and private accommodation have access to private roof terraces.

Our remit includeD the supply, hire and erection of all external and internal scaffolding; in addition to this we have also provided two 2 tonne passenger/goods hoists on site.

The project is one of two sites which make up the development, the other being R4 where we have also provided access.
