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.
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.
