TwelveTrees Park is a brand new development of over 3,800 homes built around 12 acres of open green space, landscaped gardens and a Wi-Fi enabled park. Located just minutes from West Ham station, it will be one of the best connected developments in London, with three tube lines, National Rail and the DLR offering fast and regular links to the City and beyond. With a new school, independent bars and cafés, restaurants and a community centre at its heart, this will be one of the most exciting regeneration schemes in London.
Group SCS have recently been appointed by Berkeley Homes to design and install smoke control systems to mitigate the risks and allow construction to proceed safely. Based on our previous experience of major high-rise projects we selected a Class D pressurisation system designed to BS EN 12101-6 based on the fact that occupants engaged in construction work may take longer to evacuate than that expected in an alert or able- bodied environment. The systems are currently in detailed design and will be operational this year.
