Bermondsey Balconies, Crimscott Street - London Square

Alloy Fabweld worked closely with London Square, the main developer of the master plan, to reinvigorate the area and redevelop the buildings by providing a look and feel to complement the heritage of the buildings.

Alloy Fabweld enjoyed applying our specialist approach to craft the 30 external balconies' to complement the overall aesthetics of the new build design of the London Square development. With our design, manufacture, and installation of the external balconies, along with the careful refurbishment and restoration of the 100 internal balconies.

This was all part of an overall masterplan to reinvigorate the area and redevelop the buildings by providing a look and feel to complement the heritage of the buildings, whilst, at the same time, creating a contemporary modern style that is fitting with the overall regeneration.

London Square Bermondsey, is located in a vibrant area of the Capital, this exciting new community of homes features new garden squares and walkways, plus a 24-hour concierge and on-site gym. Offering a quick walk to buzzing Bermondsey Street and London Bridge Station. Scooping the prestigious Silver Award in the Best Apartment Scheme category at 2021 WhatHouse? Awards. The judges' of the award highlighted the pivotal role that the development is playing in the wider regeneration of the SE1 area.

Creating this landmark living design across three heritage and contemporary buildings holding 1-3 bedroom apartments and duplexes. London Square Bermondsey is a new £220m neighbourhood, providing homes, flexible workspaces, and art studios in a collection of former industrial and modern buildings.

The development opens up the 4.7-acre site of the former Rich Industrial Estate, which was previously home to a tannery and the Crosse & Blackwell Branston pickle factory, creating new squares, open green spaces, and walkways connecting the site to surrounding streets.

The restoration and conversion of the original Tannery building, which dates from the 1920s and is a fine example of industrial architecture. It will also provide new premises for Tannery Arts, an independent charity based in Bermondsey since 1993, which nurtures new artists and makes contemporary art accessible to the public through exhibitions and educational projects.

Working closely with the community and Southwark Council, a hybrid planning permission scheme was created to develop the Rich Industrial Estate into a mixed-use development including new homes, workspace, an art gallery, and public open space. The development is now referred to as London Square Bermondsey.

The Bermondsey regeneration reinvigorates a run-down and disjointed industrial estate in central London, that held many vacant and under-used buildings with historic value back into use. The site has some of the last remaining examples of buildings for the tannery trade, an industry that defined Bermondsey in the 19th and early 20th Century. The scheme refurbishes these existing buildings and supplements them with new ones to provide new commercial, retail and residential uses.

Providing more than 400 new homes, 35% of which will be affordable and social housing, with a new commercial hub of 20,000 sq.m dedicated to small and medium-sized enterprises. The green spaces enable the land to be renewed that was previously contaminated by centuries of industrial use. The new landscape will see the planting of more than 100 trees across the site and the creation of new public and private open planted spaces.
