We are pleased to have supported Fairview Homes in their latest development at Highams Park, Hickman Avenue, in North London.
Fairview Homes Endeavour Development at Highams Park
The development consists of three apartment blocks, A B & C. The scheme comprises 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, 66 in total across the 3 blocks. It has been branded Endeavour – with each block named after a famous explorer – Cook, Shackleton and Scott.
Balconies at the development will feature a floral pattern design pioneered by the artist William Morris, a leading figure in the English Arts & Craft movement of the 19th Century who was born in nearby Walthamstow.
The development requires trusses, used to create a flat roof with falls and is of substantial scale:
- Block A – 208 trusses.
- Block B – 276 trusses.
- Block C – 177 trusses.
Also accounted for during the design process are large vent extract units supported on top of the trusses.
The trusses are hung using rapid build hangers, as there is not sufficient blockwork above for a standard JHI hanger. We have also supplied:
- Lateral restraint straps
- RST3 & RST1 straps, dependent on amount of wall below to hold down roof.
- Plywood layouts for carpenters on site.
The development is a 5-minute walk from Highams Park station (on the Overground line from Liverpool Street to Chingford).
Jeremy Gee, Main Board Director for Fairview, commented: “Highams Park is a location which has previously fallen under the radar of home buyers in the capital but is now becoming increasingly popular with commuters looking for a village lifestyle within easy reach of central London. “With excellent rail links, a wide range of amenities, and the open spaces of Epping Forest, Walthamstow Marshes and the River Lee Valley Country Park all close by, Highams Park really does offer buyers the best of both worlds.
