Hampstead Reach

Contractor: Barratt London
Location: Hampstead Reach NW11

Hampstead Reach is a new development for North London consisting of 45 properties – 39 apartments and six houses, designed to reflect the Arts & Crafts architecture prevalent in Hampstead Garden Suburb.

Our contract covered the structural mansard roofing over the apartment block and truss roofs to the six houses and garages. The complex roof construction over the apartment block was of a cut and pitched rafter design with a flat roof, joisting between a steelwork structure. Health and Safety working at height was of paramount importance on this development and our carpenters used a harness system in line with our safety and rescue documentation produced with our safety advisors on site. Mobile cranes were supplied by TCS to safely lift the trusses for the houses during installation.

TCS supplied and fitted the feature oak stairs to the six houses which included the following specifications:

  • Oak Staircases assembled in short flights and clad over the concrete formwork
  • 22mm oak treads and 9mm oak veneered risers
  • Oak newel posts square with pencil round or chamfer around the top and bottoms
  • Oak handrails & Glass Balustrades
  • Oak engineered 18mm floor boards to landing with oak skirting/string
  • Spray painted RAL 9005 Jet Black
  • Wall handrails and stainless steel brackets where needed

External Works to the houses:

  • Oak balcony / porch constructions
  • Timber Decking to the houses
  • Front and Rear Entrance doors

Internal Works to the houses & apartments:

  • Door-sets
