Green Man Lane is a five-hectare housing scheme in Ealing. Design by Conran and Partners for housing providers A2Domininion/Rydon (and built by Rydon Contruction), the scheme replaces a crumbling 1979's estate. The new development comprises 700 homes - a mixture of affordable, shared ownership and private sales - as well public spaces and community facilities.

Green Man Lane is a flagship scheme for the Borough of Ealing. The architects have replaced the aerial walkways and open access undercrofts of the old estate with traditional street patterns that introduce natural surveillance. On-street parking and secure rear gardens help prevent vandalism and thoroughfares are well signposted. The scheme has also been pre-assesed as achieving Building for Life Gold Standard.

The construction of Windmill Park consists of 212 residential homes in total, including 1, 2, 3 & 4 bedroom apartments in 9 blocks of flats and 7nr 4-storey 4-bed town houses with a total of 71 rented, 39 intermediate rent, 52 shared ownership and 50 private sale.

The development is supported by a balance of facilities including retail and car pool (club), all clustered in a series of courtyard concepts with a Remembrance Square and Commemorative Garden.

The Square forms the entrance of the development and although there is no through-road, the un-gated development has through-pedestrian access.

The scheme achieves Code 4 through a range of measures including enhanced building envelope and a centralised combined heat and power plant, together with gas fired back up boilers.

The scheme was registered with considerate contractors scheme and we raised £1300 from charging subcontractors to park on site and this was used to buy the local school an IMAC computer.

In summary this was a large multi-tenure project with complex M & E infrastructure. Allenbuild delivered this and provided community investment in the local school
