During October 2017, the project’s ground floor slab has been completed in all areas. The new school’s ground floor columns and walls have been constructed, with the level 1 slab under construction. The residential tower’s core has progressed to level 6, with the level 2 tower slab under construction. The residential block along Nile Street has had the ground floor columns constructed and construction of level 1 slab is in progress.

Community Engagement

The site hosted its first work experience placement from City and Islington College in October. The placement was arranged via Inspire a local charity that facilitates the placement of young people in Hackney by skill matching them with local employers. We will be hosting further placements during the next few months.

A construction taster day will be held at our Tiger Way site on Saturday 11th November from 10.30 a.m. until 1 p.m. Discover what a career in construction is all about and the wide ranging employment paths available. Registration will be required and admittance to site will be by invitation only. If you are interested please register your interest at tigerwayinfo@mclarengroup.com.

We support Hackney Council in hiring local labour and we are currently recruiting. If you live in Hackney and are looking for a job or an apprenticeship, contact hackneyworks@hackney.gov.uk. Hackney Works is a free recruitment service run by the Council. Whether you’re just starting out, haven’t worked for years or you want to change careers, they can advise you.

Planned works for November

During November, the concrete frame works consisting of columns and slabs will continue to the school, residential tower and Nile Street Block. Our masonry contractor will also begin construction of the blockwork walls within the basement that form the new plant rooms and residential amenity spaces. Additionally the site’s perimeter hoarding will also be updated with a new look that reflects the development’s new name.
