Alexandra Avenue


This appointment refers to a new build development situated on a prominent corner where Eastcote Lane intersects with Alexandra Avenue in Harrow. Once the Matrix pub, the site has been cleared following Planning approval for a five-storey residential development accommodating 60 apartments and one dwelling with underground parking.

The Brief

This project calls for the regeneration of an existing brownfield site, maximising its potential with the introduction of a new residential development. Taking the project forward, Lawray developed technical and production drawings to support this concrete frame development with extensive underground parking for the apartments above. The apartments underwent a review to ensure space planning and fit out met with London guides and the demands of the current marketplace/area.

Our Solution

This project is another positive example of Lawray’s ‘Design and Build’ and Revit 3D capability, being appointed from Stage 4 onwards and inheriting a scheme with planning approval in place. Lawray set to work carrying out its own due diligence, developing a 3D Revit model, setting up processes to discharge conditions in a timely manner whilst reviewing such criteria as Building Regulations, Fire Strategy/Protection, London Guides and the like. Having reviewed the construction programme our team organised resources for technical delivery, enabling positive co-ordination with other disciplines involved via workshops and Revit model. Having such a model in place, helped integrate MEP, Structure and architecture at an early stage via clash detection providing a seamless construction approach on site.

Lawray are an organisation which is committed to delivery without exception to quality. They are a well organised team with an excellent record in dealing with all levels of client in a complex organisation. Impressive design outcomes and a ‘can do’ attitude only provide benefit to projects they have been involved with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lawray to any organisation.
