Opal Land has selected housebuilder Galliford Try as its preferred bidder to carry out a residential redevelopment of Westfield House in south west London's Earlsfield.

The scheme includes the construction of three blocks to comprise 193 new homes, including 45 affordable homes, as well as a new cafe, riverside walks and cycle links on a site near King George's Park and the River Wandle.

Opal Land is a joint venture formed in 2011 between Galliford Try's housebuilding business Linden Homes and registered provider Thames Valley Housing Association.

“We are delighted that our building business has been appointed for the contract from the Opal joint venture for this significant development in South West London," said Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald in a statement.

"As a group, we are constantly looking for innovative ways to bring housing schemes to fruition, and for our businesses to work collaboratively. We will continue to look to build on the early success that the Opal joint venture is enjoying,” he added.
