Parson’s North, Westminster


The site is located on the Edgware Rd in Maida Vale. The Parson’s North project has changed an underused parcel of land with a bleak paved podium and underground car park in a great location in Westminster. The project comprises a part 4, part 5 and 6 storey block with 60 new homes, 19 of which are affordable, a landscaped area next to Parson’s House and retail space on Edgware Rd.


Our brief initially was to scope and obtain a detailed unexploded ordnance report, review the previous desktop studies and site investigation reports and provide a current phase 1 contaminated land desktop study with conceptual model, risk assessments and recommendations.

We then scoped and undertook an intrusive investigation, developed a remediation strategy and finally completed verification of the remedial works.
