      • Phase 2 of One Welbeck Healthcare Facility Nears Completion

        22 June 2020

        Phase 2 of this specialist day surgery and outpatient diagnostics centre in Marylebone, London is nearing completion. Work has continued on site for the duration of Covid 19 lockdown, and has included extending the scope of works to incorporate temporary overflow facilities for the NHS.

        Social distancing measures have been strictly adhered to both on site, and between the consultant team. All team meetings, both internal and external have occurred over video conference and MWA have carried out site visits and sample sign offs out of hours to ensure minimal risk.

        Due for completion at the end of July, porcelain floors are now being laid and the reeded glass door for the consultation rooms are due to arrive on site. As a part of the sample review process, MWA requested a completed consultation room to be available for comment and approval prior to all rooms being completed – which will be available for the team to inspect in the coming days.

        Once completed, this phase will include a Women’s Healthcare Centre and ENT (Ears Nose Throat) suite.

        • Planning Consent for Primrose Hill House

          18 June 2020

          MWA’s proposals to substantially extend, remodel and refurbish this large house in Primrose Hill have been consented by London Borough of Camden. The application had a recommendation for approval by the case officer and formal consent was granted during one of LBC’s first ‘virtual’ members briefing meetings earlier this month. Members briefings and indeed committees have now moved to a virtual platform in many London boroughs, ensuring planning and the construction industry are able to keep moving during these difficult times.

          MWA’s planning consent substantially extends this unique building which at present consists of 3 residential flats. Proposals include the excavation of a new basement and double storey side extension.

          • Steel Framework Installed at King's Cross Offices

            17 June 2020

            Following recent completion of the basement structure, works have recently commenced on the installation of steelwork from ground to second floor at our new-build office development in Kings Cross. This exciting project has been in the development stage since 2016 and will see the transformation of an old industrial building formerly housing a mirror workshop into a sustainable, adaptable and modern workspace.

            An extensive consultation process with local residents and the London Borough of Camden has been undertaken and will run for the duration of the construction process to keep the community informed of the progress of the development as works progress. MWA have recently teamed up with New York based firm urban farm designers, Kono Designs to integrate an urban garden within the scheme where employees will be encouraged to maintain and harvest crops such as bitter melon, blueberries & lemon trees among others enhancing the well-being and micro environment of occupants.
