NG Bailey Signs 190 Strand Residential Contract
Posted on: 10/11/2014

Recently NG Bailey have displayed a desire to want to branch out from their usual involvement with industrial, retail and commercial projects to extend over to residential contracts. Last week a breakthrough towards this target was achieved as the business secured a £13million design contract with Edward Homes, division of Berkeley Group, to develop 190 Strand.

NG Bailey proposed a shell and core infrastructure for the project, meaning that a large proportion of the construction and development would take place offsite and would be delivered to the worksite at a later basis. This pleased Edward homes as it would incur minimal daily traffic, something viewed as a strong necessity by the developers especially due to the properties location, this largely encouraged NG Bailey to win the bid.

Mark King, operations director for the Engineering Division, further explained that Edward Homes admired the way in which they offered a combination of divisions (NG Bailey will be responsible for all aspects of Mechanical & Electrical, public health installation, security systems and IT solutions) as this would mean they are able to reduce the number of men on site- allowing for better H&S and fewer interfaces between trades - enabling better collaboration.

190 Strand will be comprised of over 200 luxury apartments, town houses and pent houses, which will go to market for up to £10million. This is marked as only the start of NG Bailey’s involvement with such projects, with them already planning involvement in over 200 high-end residential developments within London over the next five years.

David Hurcomb, the company’s CEO, explained that their strategy (offsite and cross-divisional) is perfect for the dense City locations that the high-end residential market is commonly targeted at, and that this should be taken advantage of, especially due to the ‘exponential growth’ that the residential market is currently experiencing.
