12 new affordable homes built on behalf of a Housing Association
Start Date: May 2009
Completion Date: April 2010
Project Status: Completed
Building Size: 12 social housing properties all achieved Code level 3
Project Situation: The land was currently being used as a horse paddock with a stable building on-site which meant that both the horse and stable had to be re-located before any work could commence.
Project Brief: A “Design and Build” contract was required for these 12 social housing properties that had to achieve Code level 3 on behalf of a local Housing Association.
Project Solution: A new road had to be constructed and air source heat pumps were used to heat the properties.
Points of Interest: The site was subject to an archeological survey and some ancient coins where found. The project was also awarded a “Secured by Design” award from the Suffolk Constabulary.
