The team involving the developer, Bowsall; principle contractor, Globe; architect, JDA; employers agent, Poole Dick; manufacturer, Factory Homes and New Charter as the client.

  • March 2013 – Existing tenants were rehoused and New Charter took possession of the site
  • Off-site construction of the units allowed for site preparation to take place simultaneously
  • Dwellings were finished with half render/half brick slip
  • November 2013 – Site completed and tenants moved back into Boundary Close
  • Cost: £97k per unit (£25k per unit HCA funding)

Key benefits:

  • Build quality was so high that there was very little need for touch-ups or fixing minor faults
  • The homes have full accreditation and guarantees and will last as long as any timber built house
