Rund engaged as Independent Certifier on major south Fulham regeneration scheme

Leading developers are continuing to recognise Rund’s highly reputed Development Monitoring service as St William, a development arm of Berkeley Group, and Riverstone Chelsea Property Limited have jointly appointed us as Independent Certifier at King’s Road Park.

The development forms part of the substantial South Fulham Riverside Regeneration Area, which will create 1,800 new homes, restaurants, bars, leisure, and office space. The site is also home to what is thought to be the oldest gasholder in the world – a Listed feature which will be restored and incorporated into the landscaping scheme for community use.

Our appointment as Independent Certifier covers phase three of King’s Road Park, involving the creation of a 14-storey residential block. 142 private sale homes, including four penthouses, will be designed to premium quality standards to match the wider scheme’s luxury offering. Multiple resident amenities will also be developed including a 25m swimming pool, a gymnasium, two cinema rooms, and communal gardens.

As Independent Certifier, we will provide specialist, impartial advice, monitor compliance with design, specification and statutory standards and ensure all project requirements are met. Our broad scope of work includes monthly progress meetings, regular site visits and reporting, resolving disagreements and disputes related to designs or delays, and valuing variations where disputed.

We will also be certifying tranche payments, issuing stage completion certificates for wind and watertight, practical completion and estate completion. We will manage the end of defects process through undertaking inspections and issuing the certificate of making good defects.

Owen Evans, Associate Director at Rund commented: “King’s Road Park represents luxury living at its finest, offering residents high-end homes together with a rich selection of amenities.

“This type of project demands an equally high quality of consultancy. We have built a strong reputation for our Development Monitoring service, showcasing our ability to help clients successfully interrogate and navigate complex development processes. It is a pleasure to work with St William and Riverstone Chelsea Property Limited as both work to create flourishing new communities across London.”

Our Independent Certifier role is just one strand of our established Development Monitoring offering at Rund, which is currently servicing several major schemes across the UK. Read more about our service here: https://www.rund.co.uk/service/joint-venture-development-monitoring
