Greenford Quay

The Greenford Quay development is a vibrant mixed-use neighbourhood, located alongside the banks of the historic and picturesque Grand Union canal.

Overview

Greystar Europe Holdings Ltd. acquired the former GlaxoSmithKline and Sunblest Bakery sites in January 2016. They consulted extensively with Ealing Council, the Greater London Authority, local businesses, residents, and other stakeholders to develop proposals for modern canal-side living in the heart of Greenford, West London.

The vision - to a bring the previously derelict 20.3-acre site back to life; reviving the area and creating a lasting community for residents and the visitors alike.

In winter 2018, Maylim was appointed as principal contractor to deliver the first phase of external works surrounding the Tillerman’s Building; a modular built, mixed-use development.

Greenford Quay Phase 1B is the first phase of the overall scheme. Crucially, it is the integral part of the Greenford Quay masterplan. It not only consists of the central square, which is at the heart of the development, but also includes the canal side amphitheatre. The amphitheatre and water fountains have already become a popular attraction within the community.

Key aspects of Maylim’s remit included; extensive civil and structural design and installation, water features, external lighting, CCTV and data systems, linear and below ground drainage, paving and cladding detailing, as well as masonry design and sampling. The luscious soft landscaping scheme features mature and semi-mature trees, herbaceous planting, turf and wildflower meadows.

Maylim delivered the majority of these works in-house with our own teams, whilst also fulfilling our duties as principal contractor. Specialist sub-contractors were used for the water features, soft landscaping, irrigation, surfacing and resin bound gravel.
