Timber frame is playing a role in the £3.2m transformation of a former Hackney nightclub into a mixed development of social and private housing.

Social housing provider Partnerships First is using its Tee-U-Tec timber frame construction system in the regeneration project, which also involves the Community Housing Association and Housing Corporation.

The Martello Terrace development, on the site of the former All Nations nightclub, incorporates three apartment buildings – two split four/five storey blocks for the private market and one for social housing. The 11-apartment social block will be totally timber framed, while one of the private blocks will use a combination of Tee-U-Tec and brick and block, and the third is a refurbishment of the existing building.

Demolition work started in September last year with completion scheduled for this December.
