Denne to build Hove homes

27 Jun 11 Contractor Denne has been selected by Southern Housing Group to build 40 affordable homes in Hove, on the East Sussex coast.

Southern Housing Group is one of country’s largest housing associations, owning and managing more than 25,000.

Denne, which won a £5.3m contract in open tender, starts construction in August 2011 and is scheduled to complete next winter.

The development will be built using a concrete frame solution with a combined heat and power system running central boilers. There are also plans to use solar photovoltaic panels on the roof for electricity generation. This use of renewable technologies means that the development is targeted to achieve a Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4.  The scheme will also include a basement car park, together with associated drainage and services, as well as external hard and soft landscaping.

Architect is Michael Cook Associates; structural, civil and services engineer is MLM Structures and acoustic consultant is Acoustic Associates.
