Award Winning Housing Project Uses Pre-Fabricated Cold-Formed Steel Panels (Bourbon Lane, White City, London)

Topics

A multi-award winning housing project in Bourbon Lane, White City, London was built using modern methods of construction to achieve an EcoHomes Good rating.

Consisting of a mix of family houses, maisonettes and flats at three, four and five stories the development provides 78 affordable homes including shared ownership opportunities as well as affordable rented housing.
