Godson Street Project Wins RIBA Award

We are pleased to announce that the mixed-use project on Godson Street, Islington, won the RIBA London Award 2016 earlier this month. BBS was appointed as the Approved Inspectors on this project by Edgley Design back in 2012 and saw the project through to completion in late 2015.


“Godson Street is a distinctive and original piece of form-making. An innovative mixed-use scheme, the design’s striking geometry and subtle colour palette make it an arresting addition to the local landscape. The partners have transformed Godson Street, with the project emerging from a disused and rubbish-filled site into an eye-catching addition to the city”.

Planner: KR Planning Limited
Architect: Contemporary Design Solutions
Main Contractor: Designated Contractors Limited
Building Control: BBS Building Control Limited

Work is nearing completion on this interesting mixed-use development. The scheme combines a 55 bedroom hotel, student accommodation (comprising 471 rooms over 17 floors), commercial and retail space located at the ground and mezzanine levels. The basement contains a health club, laundry and staff facilities. The project is unique as it is made of ‘pods’ that are manufactured in China and shipped to the UK.  The pods are already fitted out during the manufacturing process, so ready to use once they have arrived on site and the services connected.  Works on site are progressing well and quickly. The pods, steel frames and concrete floor decks are all complete and the external cladding and insulation in currently in progress.

The client, Hallmark Estates, has also recently appointed BBS to provide the Building Control services on another project in North London of a similar type to the Colindale scheme. This new build project will incorporate 273 student accommodation units and a warehouse.
