In partnership with Home Group, we were instrumental in launching and undertaking this scheme of 46 general needs properties. The project was part of our Land-Inclusive Developments service, through which STG sourced the site and arranged the sale, transferring ownership of the land to Home Group at ‘golden brick’ stage. The overall commitment by STG was considerable, comprising the land price and funding of the development works for several months.
The new build works generally included:
STG managed the design coordination, planning applications and detailed design activities from RIBA Stage D. The scheme attained Level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. At the 2014 LABC West Yorkshire Building Awards, the project was named Best Affordable Housing Scheme for the region.
The works were undertaken in a largely residential area, in proximity to local businesses and public buildings. We worked closely with local residents and business owners to ensure that any disruption was minimised. The properties were destined for occupation mainly by ethnic minority tenants from Asian backgrounds; therefore the design and construction works were undertaken with these families in mind. Key concerns included ample room sizes, appropriate cooking facilities, space for entertaining guests etc.
