Babbage Point, Greenwich
Babbage Point (formerly known as Hiltons Wharf), is a new high density mixed use development in Greenwich. The scheme has transformed a vacant site on the edge of Deptford Creek with a design inspired by warehouse and dock buildings, reinterpreting this typology to create 85 high quality apartments along with commercial space and basement parking. Homes within the private led development were built to Lifetime Home standards and benefit from private terraces, balconies and winter gardens, offering generous amenity space and excellent views across the creek. Flexible commercial and work space is provided on the ground floor, creating an active street frontage.
Having successfully designed the scheme up to planning, bptw worked with contractor Durkan to take the designs forward in Revit. This was the first collaborative BIM project undertaken by the client, contractor and external consultants. The use of BIM provided significant improvements in co-ordination between consultants which helped to reduce construction clashes between disciplines and ensure a smooth construction process. Construction work on Babbage Point was completed in October 2015.
