News Atkins Appointed Sustainability Advisor Londons £26bn Old Oak Common Redevelopment

Atkins has been appointed as sustainability advisor on London’s £26 billion Old Oak Common redevelopment.

The design, engineering and project management consultancy will work with Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) and its cost and project management consultant Faithful+Gould to develop six sustainability targets for the Old Oak and Park Royal schemes.

The targets will be based around six core themes which include urban form and public space, transport, energy, waste and materials, water and green/blue infrastructure.

At five times the size of the Capital’s King’s Cross redevelopment and one of the biggest schemes of its type in Europe, the project will deliver more than 25,500 new homes and create 65,000 jobs.

Sean Lockie, sustainability director, Faithful+Gould, said: “Old Oak and Park Royal is a massive opportunity for London to do things that haven’t been done before.

“It means creating a vision which sets out clear goals, such as being healthy to live in, flexible over time, affordable, comfortable, and being energy and resource efficient, and then taking a systematic approach to delivery.

“We’ll need to come up with some new business models to achieve this but in doing so we have a great opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives.”

Atkins will run workshops with OPDC, developers and local boroughs until August, before releasing its sustainability report in September.
