Laying the foundations at The Verdean
We're gradually increasing the number of operatives on site here in Acton as we gear up for full capacity in October. Meanwhile, piling works for The Oak are now complete, laying the foundations for the 160 homes here.
Demolition of phase 1 is complete! This means we were able to kick off piling works for The Oak. Piling is where we dig deep holes into the ground which will become the foundation to the building.

The site team's welfare and office facilities have been delivered and a 6-week install programme is underway ready for full occupation of The Verdean site team from mid-October.
