Lucas powers ahead at Battersea
Lucas has won a major residential painting package in the redevelopment of the wider area around Battersea Power Station.
This latest win for the Lucas team is to paint a total of 308 residential units. They range from studios and 1-3 bedroom apartments, to townhouses and duplex penthouses in two distinctive, 15-storey buildings forming part of Prospect Place.
They are part of Battersea Phase 3 and are sited next to Battersea Power Station which is undergoing redevelopment now. When this phase is completed there will be a series of imaginatively shaped buildings of over 1300 homes designed by architects Gehry Partners and Foster + Partners and situated around Prospect Park. They will include the largest roof garden in London.
As well as painting the apartments to the highest standards, Lucas is also responsible for painting all residential corridors and lobbies as well as the shared podium area between the ground and upper ground floors of the buildings.
This latest Lucas project at Battersea is for Sir Robert McAlpine who are the Construction Managers and is due to start shortly with a scheduled finish of late 2021.
We have also been delivering extensive fit out, refurbishment and finishing packages throughout the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station on Phase 2, including initial accommodation works for the site workforce, painting luxury apartments constructed within the power station and complex refurbishment works which, when completed, will give the development its unique character and style.
Danny Lucas, Executive Chairman and Managing Director of Lucas, said: “The packages we are winning at Battersea demonstrate our ability to deliver high quality, large scale fit out and finishing programmes as well as intricate refurbishment projects.”
