Canada Water, London

British Land and London Borough of Southwark, as landowners, submitted planning for a major redevelopment which will create a new urban centre at Canada Water. Public consultation on the proposals started in spring 2014, with discussions regarding the SE16 Printworks Site being included. Due to site acquisitions, the project has been expanded over time to include the Surrey Quays Shopping Centre and Surrey Quays Leisure Park Sites.

Project Scope

Our Key Responsibilities

Gattica were engaged after the initial master planning stage to take a holistic view at the utility infrastructure requirements for the development. As the project has progressed our role within the Canada Water team has grown to look at detailed design within the first phase. Working alongside the client and the design teams our responsibilities included:

  • Site wide utility design and an advisory role on how utilities affect the masterplan as it evolves
  • Coordination of the diversion, protection and abandonments of the existing utility networks including various substations located within
    the masterplan area
  • Management and oversight of site-wide load schedules – manage and liaise with adopting authorities, phasing plans, accommodation schedules from strategic perspective
  • Management and oversight of plot load schedules – confirm and challenge via plot clinics and designers guide monitoring, feedback into the site wide load schedules once loads are confirmed
  • Ongoing detailed designs for all phases to facilitate plot connections
  • Liaising with the various incumbent and independent utility companies to agree master planning and delivery of the new infrastructure
  • Liaison with utility infrastructure adopting authorities on all matter relating to both masterplan design, loads and plot coordination
  • Monitor adoption processes
