Hollybrook Homes

Hollybrook Homes was established in 1987 and since its inception has played an integral role in a plethora of design and construction projects.

The firm pride themselves in their continued excellence in design and construction and has seen their efforts culminate in some of the UK’s most innovative and successful developments.

The firm has won the company NHBC Pride in the Job Awards, NHBC Seal of Excellence Awards, Considerate Constructors Awards and The RIBA Housing Design Award and certification by the Forest Stewardship Council.

Hollybrook has outstanding credentials in new-build and restoration with considerable experience not just in new-build, but also in the restoration and refurbishment sector, having successfully completed many diverse and challenging projects. The firm’s breadth of knowledge, passion for design excellence and aim to maintain the highest standards ensures the ongoing creation of bespoke, high quality, award-winning schemes.

Every Hollybrook scheme takes the environment into account. The organisation’s use of energy saving construction processes and sustainable building materials contribute to energy efficient homes that exceed legislative requirements. Hollybrook was the first developer in the UK to be certified by the Forest Stewardship Council for using timber from sustainable sources.

Hollybrook offer an array of services including In-house Planning, Legal, Surveying and Construction Expertise, Excellent Joint Venture Track Record and experience of Resolving Legal Title Issues. The firm also is an expert at undertaking Listed Building Conversions and Complex Brownfield Sites.

Hollybrook acquired and extended a Grade II Listed building in Southwark in 2012. The 45,000 sq ft was formerly Southwark Councils offices until it was acquired by Hollybrook and then was transformed into Bath House Lofts.

The building was constructed in 1928 as part of Bermondsey Town Hall and is an impressive and imposing building containing a wealth of interesting architectural detailing including a magnificent triple height entrance foyer.

Consent was obtained in late 2012 to convert the building to provide 41 loft-style apartments.  The development is located in the heart of the fashionable Bermondsey area and a short walk from both Bermondsey and London Bridge Underground Stations.

Works commenced in late 2012 with an expected completion date of Summer 2014. The conversion works were sensitive and complex but the resultant development will be impressive and quite unique.

This stunning development has won the Premier Guarantee Excellence Award and has been nominated for the Premier Guarantee Top Development, a further shortlist of the excellence awards.

Hollybrook have also been recognised for their works on The Horizon at Regents Canal. The first block of flats, which completed in June 2014, received an NHBC Pride in the Job award and Seal of Excellence award in September 2014.

The private scheme of over 200 apartments comprises over four separate buildings. The buildings are of contemporary design by award winning Architects Burwell Deakins Architects and range in height from 10 to 18 storeys.

The site is well located close to Mile End, Stepney Green and Bethnal Green Tube Stations giving fast links to the City of London. Local landmarks include the Roman Road Market which is just five minutes walk away.

The upper floors of the development provide impressive views of Canary Wharf and the City. The site itself is located alongside Regent’s Canal which provides a pleasant amenity for walking and cycling. Mile End Park, also located close by on the opposite side of the canal, provides some 90 acres of open parkland.
