Brett Supplies Chatham's Residential Regeneration Project

Brett Concrete have supplied material to Medway Development Company for an impressive property development in Chatham, offering over a hundred new apartments and flats. The eight-storey building scheme, called Garrison Point, will also include underground parking, electric charge points and specialist landscaping works.

Construction is well underway, and a topping out ceremony - marking that the building had reached its highest point - took place at the end of last year. 

To facilitate the 24-meter-high structure, specialist concrete solutions were used that are particularly effective at preventing soil and sulphates from damaging structural supports, reducing the need of future repair works. Additionally, a waterproof “Hydro-Crete” pump mix was supplied for the basements and lift pits, protecting these areas from water exposure.

“These concrete solutions were specified due to their high-performance and commercial application,” said Dave Amos, Field Sales Manager for South East. “Being able to offer these types of specialist materials allows us to fulfil ambitious projects with varying requirements, such as Garrison Point.”

The £20 million project will redevelop redundant waste land close to Fort Amherst, which was constructed in 1756 to ward off a potential French invasion. To complement the historic setting, specialist landscaping and garden works were carried out alongside the building’s construction. Medway Council have expressed their confidence in project, as well as its importance in the wider regeneration of Chatham town and the surrounding area.

Councillor Howard Doe, Deputy Leader of Medway Council and Chair of Medway Development Company, said: “I am pleased to see how well the works at Garrison Point are progressing. The new homes will benefit from fantastic transport links and impressive views with shops, two theatres and Chatham’s rich history on their doorstep. Garrison Point supports our ambition of establishing Chatham as our city centre, as well as our work to develop brownfield sites to deliver exciting regeneration projects. I look forward to watching the works progress.”

Garrison Point, which is expected to be completed in summer 2022, will be joined by equally transformative property developments on the Waterfront and at Mountbatten House. Together with a planned government fund worth nearly £14.5 million, Chatham’s urban regeneration is starting to take shape.
