On course at Canalside
Work on the first residential phase of the Canalside regeneration is advancing well.
Contractor Gilbert Ash, are constructing 10 townhouses and a block of 82 apartments in a courtyard arrangement. Car parking is provided underneath a podium deck with landscaped gardens above.
The six storey apartment block is concrete frame and has now reached first floor level. The foundations for the town houses are currently being constructed.
Also part of the Canalside development, Pelikaan are making headway with the completion of the steel frame for the state-of-the-art leisure complex.
The facility at Bishop David Brown School will include a 25-metre swimming pool, separate teaching pool, a five-court sports hall, studios and a gym. There will also be a full-size, floodlit 3G football pitch and new grass football and rugby pitches. The complex will be heated, in part, by low-carbon energy provided by heat pumps and solar panels.
Both projects are part of a much wider development for Thameswey Developments Ltd.
The other phases are planned to start on site in late 2020 and the whole scheme will be complete in six years.
The project involves building more than 1000 energy-efficient homes, half of which will be affordable housing. They will cater for people of all ages and include homes for the elderly, people with disabilities and sharers. It will also include a hub providing shops, a doctors’ surgery, nursery and community centre.
The Canalside development supports ThamesWey’s mission to build sustainable spaces promoting health and wellbeing for people living and working in a modern, thriving neighbourhood.
Synergy are delighted to be involved with this significant regeneration project for Woking.
