McBains Cooper appointed to Southwark development

McBains Cooper has been appointed as interdisciplinary consultant on a scheme to boost the local economy in Southwark, London.
The property and construction consultancy firm will provide project and cost management, architecture, mechanical and electrical engineering and sustainability advice for Delancey and Oakmayne Properties which has bought Oakmayne Plaza in Elephant and Castle.

The one acre site, which is freehold, is in the heart of the Southwark Regeneration Area, and has planning consent for 390,000 sq ft of private residential, student, leisure and ancillary commercial uses and will provide 373 residential apartments and penthouses, all for private sale.

The £200 million scheme will comprise three towers, rising from 16 to 24 storeys, linked by a three-storey podium. A multi-screen cinema complex, cafes, restaurants and a supermarket will be developed in the commercial space in the podium supporting the residential towers.

Mark Leeson of McBains Cooper said: 'This is a classic illustration of how McBains Cooper's interdisciplinary approach to driving a project will come into its own - there are many facets to this development, and our team, including project and cost management, architecture, sustainability and building services, will all be based under one roof: McBains Cooper.

'With the new market square to the south - on the scale of Borough Market - eventually connecting into to the wider master plan being worked up by Lend Lease, the scheme will have a huge positive impact on the local economy in what is set to be one of the most important urban regeneration schemes in the country.'
