As mentioned above, Ardmore has been involved in numerous projects, from Pembury Circus and the Travelodge at Euston Station, to the Kingston University project, which involved the construction of a seven-story building with 214 units for student accommodation. At present, Ardmore Construction is working on the Wornington Green Housing scheme, which involves the transformation of Wornington Green into a mixed-use estate.
Recently, Ardmore delivered the Dorsett Shepherd’s Bush Hotel project for Dorsett Hospitality International as part of a major refurbishment of the Shepherd’s Bush Pavilion.
Cormac Byrne, Managing Director of Ardmore, said:
“I am extremely proud of the Ardmore team who have worked so hard to deliver this technically demanding project. It was an extremely complex project to deliver; the building’s Grade II listing required the façade and two sides of the building to remain intact whilst the rest of the building was demolished and the iconic curved roof replaced with a vaulted glass roof. I am delighted that we have been able to add to our reputation for consistently delivering challenging projects to the highest quality.”
A new project for Ardmore is a £90m mixed-use project which is being constructed in Sutton in South London. The project – implemented by CNM Estates – will see the erection of 332 new residential units, along with 40,000 sq ft of office and retail space. A 139-bedroom hotel will also form part of the project.
In order to construct the new project, an existing building, Sutton Point Tower is to be demolished, with the majority of this work taking place in autumn 2015. The project is currently scheduled to reach completion in August 2018.
Cormac Byrne, said:
“We are thrilled to be awarded this major contract by CNM Estates. Our direct appointment on the job underlines our reputation within London as the go to contractor of choice for landmark schemes.”
As a responsible contractor, Ardmore ensures that all its practices adhere to the best levels of health and safety and as such recently announced that it had reached a milestone for residential project, Dickens Yard. Ardmore had successfully amassed one million working hours without a reportable accident.
