Fulham Reach – NHBC
Award-winning housing development Fulham Reach continues to make swift progress as it brings luxury living to one of London’s most beautiful locations. Fulham Reach, by St George, is located on the banks of a stunning stretch of the River Thames.
Offering high quality and beautifully designed apartments, Fulham Reach also boasts a vibrant selection of cafes, bars, restaurants and hotel style leisure and entertainment facilities. With easy access to the heart of London, Fulham Reach revitalises the riverside area with its sleek and sophisticated architecture that is a welcome addition to London’s skyline.
The origins of Fulham reach can be traced back to 2010 and it continues to make steady progress with Phase 4 work nearing completion. Work on phase 5 is about to begin with phase 6 waiting in the pipeline.
The stellar work at Fulham Reach was recently recognised with a NHBC Pride in the Job Award for site manager Kristian Martin. He said:
“Here at Fulham Reach we have a great team and what that means is we are able to focus on all jobs that need carrying out. We have the time to check quality, keep the site safe and present the site well. We also have time to implement the many Q and A procedures we use.
“This is my first award. I started my apprenticeship in 1995 as a bench joiner so I’ve been in the construction industry 22 years now. I started out making windows, doors and stairs for mainly homes but this also included some school and hospital work. I did a lot of sub-contract fit outs after I completed my apprenticeship and I set up a company in 2006 so I kind of fell into the site manager role. I decided to send myself on my NVQ site manager course around 2009 to link a professional qualification to match what I was doing on site.
“I can’t express how lucky I am to be working as part of this team here at Fulham Reach. We all work really well together and we are a young office and share a great atmosphere, it really makes coming to work a pleasure.”
The work currently being undertaken is on Faulkner House and Henley Apartments. Faulkner House is a new collection of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and penthouses. The platinum penthouses at Faulkner House are a particular standout with the living spaces designed to reflect a desirable lifestyle. Included within the general specification of the penthouses are bespoke veneer internal doors, brass ‘styled’ ironmongery, bespoke bedroom wardrobes with internal lighting and most significantly terraces with views towards the River Thames.
Henley Apartments is also under construction boasting beautifully designed and impeccably finished 2 and 3 bedroom premier apartments. The innovative and uniquely designed building uses a large amount of glass that draws daylight to the heart of the building with residents also able to make the most of private balconies. Internally residents will find fully integrated European kitchens, integrated appliances and luxury bathrooms alongside a number of other high quality features.
The prominent riverside location Fulham Reach inhabits means residents and within easy walking distance of high end restaurants, bars and shops. Early this year Brasserie Blanc, the French restaurant group led by acclaimed chef Raymond Blanc, opened in Fulham Reach bringing classic and modern French dishes to the area. The restaurant has 120 covers internally with an additional 50 covers on the terrace.
Residents can also benefit from hotel style facilities. The Tamesis Club offers a range of extensive facilities including a pool, Jacuzzi and steam room. The relaxing and chilled environment is the perfect spot to unwind with a fully equipped gymnasium also on hand for those looking for something more active. The club is also home to a virtual golf experience and screening room.
Fulham Reach also features a number of elements aimed at reducing its environmental impact. All apartments are certified to Level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes and have been designed to be highly efficient in their use of energy.
St George is a member of the Berkeley Group, one of London’s leading mixed-use developers. Berkeley has been responsible for similar developments along London’s riverside and is committed to delivering high quality new residential developments.
