Longcross wins three office-to-resi conversions in Croydon

Longcross has been awarded a £48m deal to design and build 584 private rented sector flats in Croydon, south London.

The contractor will convert three existing office buildings in Croydon to provide 584 apartments for asset and property manager Criterion Capital by mid-2016.

In the largest of the three developments, it will transform former BT office building Delta Point (pictured) into 404 apartments and replace the existing façade and roof.

It will also convert Bedford House and Canterbury House to residential flats.

Longcross London office director Paul Thomas said: ‘’This significant award reinforces our visibility in the capital, establishes us as a lead provider in the PRS market and consolidates our secured workload for the next financial year.’’

Longcross managing director Mark English added: “This continues to demonstrate that our business can take the focus and mindset developed in the retail and commercial sectors and apply these skills to deliver significant schemes across a diverse marketplace.’’

Work will begin on site in January 2015.
