Construction activities have progressed significantly on-site at Queen’s Park Place over the last few months.  The structural concrete frame has now been completed and our builder, Bouygues, is currently placing brickwork and installing windows to help seal the buildings from the weather. Once this has been completed, the installation of internal services and walls will commence over the next several weeks.

A show flat will be available to view on-site by prior appointment from Autumn this year.

This should also encourage teamwork and responsibility whilst improving classroom focus and concentration levels.

There will be raised beds for the children to grow their own produce, a conservation area and a solar powered oven along with wildflowers and butterflies, an amphitheatre, weather station and compass clock.

The festival will be raising money for an open-air classroom and will bring together chefs, restaurateurs and producers and will feature food and produce stalls, craft beer, a secret picnic garden, live music and children’s activities.

We previously wrote about Hyperoptic’s super-fast broadband that will be available to all residents at Queen’s Park Place. By the looks of it we’re in good company…

Also amongst Hyperoptic’s client base is One Hyde Park, and if it’s fit for One Hyde Park it’s fit for Queen’s Park Place. With speeds up to 1GB per second and the ability to download a full high definition film in just 43 seconds, the growing popularity of Hyperoptic in high-end London development comes as no surprise.

The basement excavation has been completed and all three tower cranes are now installed and operational. The concrete frame is now under construction and has emerged well above the hoarding.

Stay tuned for further updates in 2015 as the development continues to take shape!
