The scheme, which is currently ongoing, will see the design and build of 120 timber-frame homes. Of the 120 homes, 24 are for affordable rent, 32 shared ownership and 64 open market sales.
The units will be handed over in sections, four phases (as per THT request). One phase was handed over in January 2020. The scheme started on site in July 2019 and is due to complete in late 2021.
Our in-house technical and design team and Baldwin Architects successfully got the scheme through the planning process, securing planning in 2019, with a start on site 1 July 2019. Seddon are using their standard house types for this project, with 16 different house type options.
Dan Van Den Boss, Operations Manager, has delivered the scheme from mobilisation phase with Site Manager Kevin Bray, Assistant Katie Kay, Senior QS Nathan Anderton and Assistant Josh Sutton.
Section one and two of the project have been handed over to the customer (section 1 to be used as a temporary sales area and section 2 used as the permanent sales area). Sections 3 and 4 are currently ongoing. 70 properties on section 3 are erected with approximately 20% ready for finishing trades. Section 4 currently has 25 erected properties held at first fix awaiting customer choices. Offsite works include traffic islands, street lights, toucan crossing (which is due for completion in January 2021) are 80% complete.
Our community engagement team have made contact with local schools and colleges. Seddon are using in-house apprentices (joiners, bricklayers and painters). The site has also donated scrap timber to the local schools in the area.
