Located in the heart of Forest Hill in the London Borough of Lewisham, Dacres Wood Court is a brand new collection of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments. With Dacres Wood Nature Reserve offering access to local, green spaces and Forest Hill Station a gateway to the wider city, significant recent investment has helped revitalise the area and local amenities, establishing it as a coveted district in the capital.

The development plan for Dacres Wood Court features 3 main buildings, Hennel Court, Percy Mansions and Wynell Lodge. With options to upgrade and create personalised interiors and dedicated home working environments, Dacres Wood Court residents benefit from access to a shared communal garden.

Working with Bellway Homes, urbanspec provided the design, manufacture and on-site installation of 2no. Bespoke urbanspec H-Series Bike Hubs for residential use at Dacres Wood Court.

Both H-Series Bike Hubs were designed to be Secure by Design compliant, further enhanced with bespoke chemical anchor studs and security shear nuts, specified as the fixing format for urbanspec ST Bike Stands. 14no. and 9no. secure bike parking spaces were integrated respectively across the units.
