Living MMC 

Harbard Close

Barking, London

  • Client: Pocket Living
  • Architect: Reed Watts
  • Fast build solutions reviewed and developed
  • Within Flood Zone
  • Light gauge steel work construction/panelised system

Located close to the centre of Barking, this scheme provides 78 new Pocket homes for local, first-time buyers. Arranged in two blocks, the development will be built using modular off-site construction, reducing disruption for neighbours and improving the quality of the finished homes.

Working closely with architects Reed Watts, we were appointed to undertake civil and structural engineering works including drainage strategy and flood risk assessment.

Harbard Close was built using light gauge steel work construction, which reduces carbon and material wastage by up to 20% compared to traditional builds. This means that a lot less material is used in construction, with a panelised system in a controlled environment increasing efficiency.
