United House has signed lucrative contract valued at £10 million for the construction of new homes in the Hammersmith Grove area of London.The company will be working on behalf of property provider Notting Hill Housing Group and the contract will cover the design and construction of 63 new homes in the W6 postcode.An existing building at the site is to be demolished by United House ahead of the redevelopment of the area, with the plans calling for the delivery of a six-storey property in its place.Overall, 45 of the new residential premises will be made available for private sale, with the remaining 18 allocated for shared ownership.Jeffrey Adams, group chief executive of United House, said: "United House has a strong track record of delivering technically challenging, mixed-use regeneration schemes in the capital. We are looking forward to working with Notting Hill Housing Group to bring new homes and a new focus to Hammersmith Grove."The project has been designed by Hunters Architects and will also witness the development of an additional 70 sq m of commercial space at the site, as well as a basement car park for residents and a secure bicycle storage area.Situated in one of the most historic parts of the capital, the development is to be found on the corner of Hammersmith Grove and Goldhawk Road, and adjacent to the Hammersmith Grove Conservation Area.John Hughes, group development director at Notting Hill Housing Group, concluded: "The new development will transform this location into an attractive streetscape to the benefit of the whole community."Work at the project site is now expected to get underway before Christmas, with the development scheduled for completion some time in 2015.United House will now also be working closely alongside utilities provider UK Power Networks on the decommissioning of an existing substation at the site.
