Meet the Manager – Project Director


We sat down with our Project Director working on your new home at Hendon Waterside.

There are a number of teams at Barratt London who are involved with building your new home. From purchasing the land and building the development, to making sure our specification and quality is of the highest-standard, your home is carefully planned and delivered by a number of people with various expertise.

Daniel Farenden, Projects Director, has been with Barratt London for 14 years, and has played a critical role on a number of schemes over the years. His responsibilities at Hendon Waterside include overseeing the construction of the site, coordinating the delivery team, ensuring the programme and handover date are met, and chairing meetings during the construction phase.

An important part of Daniel’s role at Hendon Waterside is to maintain health and safety on-site, ensuring all employees have the right tools and procedures to deliver their work in a safe manner. Daniel also provides support and motivation to the delivery team, while also ensuring the project is delivered within budget.

On the progress of the development, Daniel commented: “We have just completed and are currently handing over 104 units at Lakeview. We are currently building The Vista, which is 25 storeys high and is made up of two-bedroom apartments. The frame is fully completed and the facades are progressing well, and handover to our new residents will begin in May 2016”.
