Battersea Power Station – Phase 1

Maylim have secured their first phase of work at London’s newest neighbourhood.

Overview

Battersea Power Station is one of London’s most iconic buildings, although it ceased generating electricity in 1983 it has remained one of the city’s best known landmarks. Being Grade II listed has made the development of the power station complex as a large majority of its original features are to remain intact.

This is currently the biggest contract we have secured so far, being worth around 9.5 million. Each day can see between 80-90 of our staff on site, working alongside sub-contractors Outdoor Deck, Miller Druck, Kings Landscapes and Dispeker.

The central courtyard has been finished with terrazzo for a high end and sophisticated modern feel which compliments the bespoke street furniture which has been selected for the communal areas of the development. Using high quality natural stone and brick paving throughout to maintain continuity across the space. We will also be installing bespoke water features to create an ambient atmosphere to the communal areas.

Working on a project of this capacity comes with its challenges. Logistically, as there is only one road to access the site and more incoming materials than any other of Maylim’s sites this takes a higher level of co-ordination and planning. Working along the Thames has also provided new challenges and regulations have been put into place due to working close to water and coping with the high tides of the Thames.

Problem-solving aside we are pleased to say that we are on track meet Phase one’s deadline for completion by mid-May 2017.
