Our fearless Project Director, Jason Rudolph, who is leading the project on behalf of Rolfe Judd Architecture, bravely ascended our long-term neighbour, Gas Holder No. 1; getting up close and personal with this impressive Victorian structure that will soon be transformed into the home of a new residential community.

Our Planning and Architecture teams are working for Berkeley Homes on the delivery of the Oval Village. Originally designed by Grid Architects, Rolfe Judd Architecture have been working with Berkeley Homes to further develop the design and layout through an S73 Application. This redevelopment will provide 1,342 new homes (35% affordable), in excess of 14K sqm of contemporary office space, approximately 6K sqm of flexible commercial (including the re-provision of a Tesco store), 800sqm of waste management facilities, and community space set within 1 hectare of landscaped gardens, together with the restoration of the iconic listed Gasholder No 1.

A big thank you to Berkeley Homes’ for allowing our Project Director, Jason Rudolph, to put his fear of heights aside with the assistance of their rigorous safety induction and briefing, allowing him to enjoy the magnificent views of our local landscape and the emerging site. We look forward to seeing the Oval Village site evolve in our backyard and seeing Gas Holder No.1 refurbished and reinvigorated.
