Construction information

Both sites have been registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme; a national initiative set up by the construction industry to implement a code of considerate practice designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements.

Minismising construction impact

We recognise the need for the works to be carried out in a manner that limits the day-to-day impact on our neighbours. To help achieve this, a series measures are proposed, including:


  • Considered timing and routes for construction vehicles, ensuring safe access and minimum disruption to the local community.
  • Retaining full access for deliveries and collections to and from our neighbours.
  • Continuous monitoring of noise, dust and vibration levels.
  • Erection of scaffolding and safety hoarding around the sites.
  • Regular communications from the project team to ensure the local community are fully informed of upcoming works.

Managing traffic and deliveries

During the construction of the new office buildings, there will be one-way traffic along Pelham Street in an eastbound direction from South Kensington Station towards Brompton Road, from Monday (am) – Friday (pm), returning to two-way traffic at the weekend. This is to facilitate an on-street loading bay to manage construction vehicles delivering to the site and ensure that traffic flow along Pelham Street is maintained.

Vehicles will not be able to enter Pelham Street from Brompton Road from Monday morning to Friday afternoon for the duration of the works. Instead, vehicles will be routed north along Brompton Road to the A4, shown in green on the diversion map below. Buses will however be permitted to left turn onto Fulham Road and then turn right onto Sydney Place, shown in orange.

A thorough signage strategy will be in place to direct traffic to the diversion route and inform drivers which roads are for local access only for residents.
