Chobham Manor

Taylor Wimpey and L&Q’s bid winning scheme for Chobham Manor in the QEII Olympic Park

Chobham Manor, Olympic Park

One of the 15 new settlements to be created as part of the legacy of the 2012 Olympics, Chobham Manor’s 850 homes are being successfully sold by housing association L&Q and housebuilder Taylor Wimpey.

I was commissioned by Taylor Wimpey and L&Q to help formulate and produce the narrative for the bid and editing all contributions.

I attended design team meetings, helping to critique masterplanning and architectural proposals, before commissioning, editing and writing key elements of the JV’s successful bid.

Architect dRMM’s Trafalgar Place in the Elephant & Castle scheme was shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize

Lend Lease, Elephant & Castle

In 2007 Australian developer Lend Lease was selected by Southwark to be the council’s development partner for the Elephant & Castle regeneration.

Lend Lease needed a document that set out the vision for politicians, that was easy to understand, not too technical and not in a bid format.

Urbik created a 60-page magazine to explain Lend Lease’s proposals. Lend Lease won the bid.
