Balfron Tower development

The work to refurbish Balfron Tower and its surrounding landscape started on Monday 14th August 2017. The construction work will be managed by Telford Homes Plc and will take approximately two years to complete.

The project is being undertaken as part of a joint venture between Poplar HARCA, Londonew castle and Telford Homes Plc. The joint venture is known as Balfron Tower Developments Ltd.

The construction work will be managed by Telford Homes Plc and will take approximately two years to complete. Telford Homes will spend the first few weeks setting up their site accommodation and securing the site with hoarding.

The work required to refurbish Balfron Tower is complicated and needs to be done carefully as it is Grade II* listed. The work includes new aluminium windows, concrete repairs to the structure, and new shared services. All of the Flats will be completely renovated internally. In addition there will be significant improvements made to the public realm areas around the building. These areas will remain open to the wider estate and general public on completion.
