Stanwell New Start
The £50m Stanwell New Start regeneration is breathing new life into a post-war estate in Surrey. It was initiated in response to a concentration of poor quality housing stock, primarily prefabricated houses and 1970s construction apartment blocks. In partnership with Spelthorne Borough Council, we agreed a comprehensive physical regeneration of the area and a programme of community investment initiatives to bring about a positive change for residents.
Stanwell New Start sees phased development across 21 acres of 326 new homes, a community centre, and the enhancement of open spaces and an Extra Care facility for older Spelthorne residents called Chestnut Court. Construction of Phase 1 of Viva Stanwell commenced in May 2009.
Phase three of the transformation of the Green Man Lane estate in West Ealing is completed, delivering new apartments, maisonettes and houses.

Phase two delivered 187 new private sale and affordable homes, including over 20 homes for wheelchair users.
The regeneration scheme also includes an eco-friendly energy centre, community café, public parks, play areas and a new primary school. Awarded Best Regeneration Project at the Evening Standard New Homes Awards, the scheme is a joint venture with Rydon and has been designed by Conran and Partners.
