Designed by Howes, Jackman & Partners for the London Borough Council of Wandsworth

York Road Stage I would be built by Wandsworth’s Building Works Department under a negotiated contract, as an experiment in rationalized building techniques. This involved a unique collaboration whereby Bovis Ltd helped the department (under W. J. Huitt) to create an on-site factory for casting cladding panels and other major concrete components for the three towers. Though not a complete building system, the techniques achieved their aim of raising productivity when construction took place in 1967–70
