Tottenham Hale Regeneration Project
Major urban regeneration scheme in north London

We are working with Related Argent to develop and help implement the construction strategy for a large-scale residential-led urban regeneration project at Tottenham Hale, north London. The project combines five sites centred on a major transport hub, and will result in around 1,000 new homes.

Argent, developer of the hugely popular area around King’s Cross Station, joined forces with US company Related to sign a Strategic Development Partnership agreement with Haringey Council. Whitby Wood is providing structural, civil and geotechnical engineering, and flood risk and CMT services for all five sites, which are the subject of a masterplan by Allies and Morrison. This ambitious project is the first phase of a wider housing scheme centred on Tottenham and will include new community facilities, shops, cafes and restaurants.

A key challenge has been to enable Related Argent to achieve its aim of providing high quality mid-market housing. The search for cost-effective solutions that are buildable on a large scale led to exploration of old and new technologies, as well as Modern Methods of Construction, such as precasting and prefabrication.

The five brownfield sites cluster around Tottenham Hale Station — serving London Underground’s Victoria Line, National Rail and future Crossrail 2 links — and a bus interchange, which all remain operational during works. Below-ground obstructions on the sites include two large sewer mains, the buried fuel tanks of a former petrol station and the Victoria Line tunnels.

The project team for this major urban regeneration scheme includes: architects Pollard Thomas Edwards, Alison Brookes and AHMM; infrastructure engineer Buro Happold; cost consultants Mace and Faithful & Gould; and project managers Total Property Solutions and Gardiner & Theobald.
