Client: Origin Housing Group
Services: Employer's Agent, Principal Designer and Party Wall
This is a high quality housing project comprising 21 self-contained units in one stylish brick and block three storey building.
Established on a former petrol station which had an adjoining vehicle repair garage, the site required comprehensive soil remediation, including removal of the buried fuel storage tanks.
Other associated risks included the close proximity of the site to the rail infrastructure, combined with the discovery of a complicated sub system of electricity running outside of the originally provided utility company service drawings. The scheme incorporates PV technology and enhanced security systems.
The Principal Contractor for this project is Bugler Developments Ltd. It is through their dedication, diligence and expertise that the project has overcome significant obstacles without compromising quality of workmanship or site management.
Silver has provided additional health & safety support and advice to our client as unforeseen elements of risk emerged.
The development was also shortlisted for prestigious title of the APS Principal Contractor of the Year, which highlights the expertise of the build, the strength of the team and the commitment of the Client in delivery of a safe and healthy project.

Located in Hornchurch Town Centre in the London Borough of Havering, this is a new build residential development comprising 44 high quality properties for private rent within a single brick-built block ranging between three and five storeys in height. The L-shaped block is five storeys to the east and three storeys on the western side and provides a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments.
We were appointed as Principal Designer by Bugler Developments and acted as a key advisor on health and safety aspects and undertook health and safety inspections during the construction phase to assist Bugler and monitor on-site health and safety compliance.
On the run up to completion we worked closely with Bugler and managed the entire health and safety file collation process. We tracked the information received from all contributors to ensure that the necessary information was provided in a timely manner and upon completion, we successfully provided the H&S file to the client which was reviewed and signed-off by the client CDM Advisor.
David Culliton, Bugler’s Pre-Construction Director said “We appointed Silver to assist us with our dual Principal Designer/Principal Contractor role at our project in North Street, Hornchurch. They provided a very professional, yet user friendly consultancy service and assisted us in the delivery of a safe, high quality scheme. We would have no hesitation in using them again.”
