Greenwich Millennium Village, London

The Millennium Village project is a sustainable new community located on the eastern side of the Greenwich Peninsula. The scheme is being developed by Greenwich Millennium Village, a consortium comprising Countryside Properties and Taylor Wimpey working closely with the GLA and Moat Housing Group.

The new community includes mixed commercial and residential space and has planning for 2700 new homes, together with social and community facilities, including a school and health centre, restaurants, workshops, and a new ‘eco’ park.

Built using some of the most advanced technology this development seeks to establish new sustainable methods of construction for the future. The village will be a beacon for 21st century living, with new technologies in the home and environmentally friendly modes of transport.

Over the past decade RSA Geotechnics have carried out a number of geotechnical and geo-environmental site investigations connected with the Greenwich Millennium Village project. Most recently we have completed ground investigations for Phase 5 of the development which involves the construction of a number of residential blocks up to eleven storeys in height, with associated access roads, car parking, amenity areas and ancillary buildings.
