Social housing, Du Cane Road, Hammersmith by Arc7 Design

[FIRST LOOK + PROJECT DATA] Work has begun on this new scheme to provide 44 new homes and the refurbishment of 112 existing homes for Ducane Housing Association on the Du Cane Road in Hammersmith and Fulham

The development is on Du Cane Road near Hammersmith Hospital and Wormwood Scrubs Prison. Arc7 Design’s plan will see the existing 1970s buildings improved to Decent Homes standard and above - with increased levels of insulation to achieve EcoHomes “Very Good” Standard. The new flats will use Modern Methods of Construction to provide modular units, constructed off site, that meet Code for Sustainable Homes level 3.

Mike Wilkins, CEO at Ducane Housing Association said: ‘We have worked hard to ensure that the £13m we are spending will radically improve the quality of homes for our tenants as well as providing new homes for much needed key workers in the borough.’
