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.
