Built in just 12 weeks the Chobham Manor marketing suite was built for Chobham Manor LLP, which comprises Taylor Wimpey and housing association L&Q, one of London’s largest residential developers. The development represents the beginning of the first of five neighbourhoods to be created in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and at almost 1000m², the suite is the largest we have ever built, and one of the largest in the London residential property sector.
The marketing suite is constructed over three storeys and comprises an impressive reception, office space and an interactive area, while upstairs a 2&3 bedroom show apartment and an impressive roof terrace afford stunning views across the development, Queen Elizabeth Park, and Central London.
Chobham Manor is also Octink’s first marketing suite to utilise a revolutionary on-ground foundation system of steel pad feet, which ultimately saves on the cost of complex foundations, and reduces the on-site build time drastically. From the point of view of Tim Hatfield, Senior Site Manager for Octink, who managed the project from start to finish, one of the main challenges presented by the project was time.
“For most companies an ideal timeline for building a marketing suite such as this would usually be up to six months, but the techniques we use have enabled us to take the project from concept and design through to completion in only 16 weeks. As a result we’ve delivered Chobham Manor on time and on budget. Our start-to-finish management of the project included the initial design access statement, concept design, through to build and decoration. We also printed all of the way-finding, safety and exterior signage on-site, as well as 150m² of wall graphics in the marketing suite and the 1km of advertising hoardings that surrounds the site".
Taking ownership of the suite, Michael O'Leary, the Sales & Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East London commented “I am extremely pleased with the new marketing suite at Chobham Manor. Octink have created a superb facility of the highest quality that is certain to impress and will enable us to offer home-buyers the very best service throughout their visit to the development. The standard quality and budget were all in line with our expectations".
