Fri 31st Mar 2017

Ardmore’s employment and skills manager, Eillish Kwai, this week (19th May) showcased Ardmore’s on-going Platinum Riverside project and local community initiatives during a residents’ forum held at Greenwich Peninsula.

The forum was arranged by Knight Dragon who are also major developers working within the Peninsula to deliver Greenwich’s master plan.

The aim of Eillish’s presentation was to keep local people informed about Platinum Riverside, Ardmore’s latest residential development scheme being delivered for Bellway Homes.

Eillish’s well received presentation also highlighted some of the important work Ardmore undertakes for local communities such as employment, skills and training initiatives, as well as resident fun days.

Eillish said:

“Resident forums and meetings are a great way to communicate and relay Ardmore’s  projects and community initiatives.
Our community initiatives are always very popular with local residents, schools and colleges and are renowned throughout the construction industry for creating new jobs, training and apprenticeship opportunities.”

The forum’s audience also included ward councillors, police and the headmaster of a local school with whom Eillish has worked closely with delivering Ardmore’s initiatives.

Project management staff from Ardmore, Knight Dragon and Wates were also in attendance to answer technical questions from residents.

Platinum Riverside is located adjacent to the banks of the River Thames and the scheme consists of 198 new units. In addition, 46 units are to be created in partnership with the Mayor of London and London & Quadrant Housing Association.

Ardmore has already delivered one of the first new build residential developments at Greenwich Peninsula.

City Peninsula (also for Bellway Homes) comprised of 229 units and Ardmore also constructed 280 student accommodation apartments for Ravensbourne College at Greenwich Peninsula.
