The most wonderful time of the year at The Silk District

We’re all getting what we want for Christmas here in Whitechapel – great progress on site, the launch of the Georgette South B2 next month, a record-breaking first report from the Considerate Constructors Scheme, and much more. Read more below.

Construction update

The Silk District’s site team are making great progress, and are currently working hard to ensure all routes into the site are clear. This will help with the logistics of moving vehicles and materials into site in the New Year.

Several cranes have now been erected on site, and are involved with the installation of concrete frames that the Georgette North & Jacquard Tower blocks will be built around.

As activity on site begins to pick up pace, the number of operatives is increasing quickly too – there are now over 150 members of the site team working at The Silk District, and early next year this will increase to 300 operatives as the plumbing, electrical installation and façade work get underway.

Setting records with the Considerate Constructors Scheme

This week, the results came back from our first Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) assessment, a report compiled following a site visit by a CCS inspector.

We are thrilled to announce that we scored an exceptional 46/50. This places us in the top ten CCS-registered sites in the UK, from a selection of thousands.

We also scored five out of five on the CCS’s key codes of considerate practice – the first time the CCS has recorded this in 22 years’ worth of visits.
