Get Living East Village
Project value: £3m over 2 phases
"Phoenix have been the contractor installing the c.£3m of retail frontages at East Village. With the input and works completed by Phoenix, the project has kept momentum, with Phoenix producing quality workmanship, applying great H&S standards and being competitively priced. It has been a pleasure, hassle-free experience to work with the Phoenix team"
- Richard Harbard, Chief Property Officer, Get Living
Get Living, is the UK’s leading large-scale residential investor, an established operator in the UK’s Build to Rent sector, operating more than 2,000 homes in London. They are currently best known for East Village, the former London 2012 Athletes’ Village. The neighbourhood includes amazing artisan cafes and handy shops, as well as other facilities including a world-class school and state of the art medical centre.
Phoenix Construction was commissioned, as part of an upgrade, to replace the window and doors of the retail units in order to provide better facilities for retailers and customers. The phasing of the individual units to replace meant very a stringent programme, allied with intrinsic coordination with the project architect and the Get Living project team.
Given the potential loss of income to the retailers for late delivery, Phoenix Construction endeavoured to manage each unit as a “back to back” programme, allied with often prevailing weather conditions, additional works unaccounted for such as re-levelling of external paving.
