Claritas Group has been appointed as design and build contractor for the development of 111-113 Mellish Street as part of London Borough Tower Hamlets’ strategy to provide quality affordable housing within the borough. The project involves the demolition of an existing Community Centre building adjacent to a primary school and the construction of two buildings, one residential over 5-storeys and one a 3- storey community building. Completing the scheme will be a community garden in a central courtyard. The work will be phased to allow the use of the existing centre during construction prior to the new community facilities completion. Images credits to Bell Phillips Architects and Plus Visual Inc
We hope all of our customers and stakeholders are staying safe and well during the Covid 19 crisis. Whilst we cant be ‘together’ at Claritas it has been lovely spending some quality ‘social’ ‘times with our Claritas family as we host various social’s via Microsoft Teams, thanks to our colleague Emma who organises them and always thinks of an interesting topic to get us all having some fun and laughter during these ‘different’ times.
Claritas has been appointed by HGG London Limited as principal contractor to deliver the redevelopment of 134 Old Street in the heart of Shoreditch, East London. The scheme involves the demolition of the existing two storey building and construction of a new seven storey building to provide office use on floors 1-6 with a retail unit at Ground Floor. The site, which is a tight infill site in a busy central London location, will comprise a CLT frame with attractive curtain walling to the front elevation. We are pleased to be working with Mary Duggan Architects (Mary Duggan) and Measur (Brian Woodhouse) to achieve the successful delivery of the project adopting our ‘two-way transparency’ culture. Works start on site in August 2020. The award of this project adds to Claritas’ recent significant wins in the London Commercial Sector

Adam Thyer, Project Manager at Royal Wharf School and the entire project team where thrilled to welcome the children from year 1 and 2 on a site visit of their new school.

In addition to the tour, all the children learnt about health and safety on building sites and where pleased to receive Ivor Goodsite work books, together with the chance to enter a health and safety poster competitions. Becki Sinclair our CCS Champion is looking forward to reviewing the entries when they arrive, and the winner will receive a book token.

AMCM Group Role: Design & Build, Principal Contractor
The new primary school at Royal Wharf is being constructed around an RC Frame on a raft slab, traditional brick built with a metsec infill including a sports MUGA area created at roof level.
This project is an excellent example of AMCM capability and capacity.
Despite the weather, our guests and hosts enjoyed a successful day’s golf at the AMCM Group Golf Day with Kevin Carpenter – whose skills certainly weren’t dampened by the weather! We also raised £630 for Duchenne UK throughout the day.
It was a pleasure to host our inaugural charity golf day in aid of Duchenne UK.
Thanks to all of our customers and suppliers who braved the weather and joined us on the day.
We look forward to another great day next year!
