Lovell chosen for £10m estate renewal

14 Oct 16 Lovell has started work on a £10m regeneration programme at a Coventry estate, continuing the renewal of the Spirit Quarters area.

Midlands housing provider Whitefriars Housing appointed Lovell to carry out the refurbishment of 300 homes at Manor Farm, a 1960s estate.

Work involves external wall insulation and new windows, doors, flat roofs and boundary fencing, plus neighbourhood environmental works.

Whitefriars director of property services Richard Osborne said: “This major regeneration scheme will transform homes and the area to deliver a fresh new contemporary look. Through excellent partnership working with the local community we have arrived at a scheme that will give more attractive, warmer and more energy efficient homes. Our appointment of Lovell marks an important first step in getting work under way on this large-scale project.”

He added: “Lovell has a great track record of delivering this type of work for Whitefriars in Coventry and we look forward to once again working with them, local residents and the city council to deliver a high quality scheme that will rejuvenate this estate.”

Lovell business development director Peter Quinn said: “We’re excited to be working again with Whitefriars Housing and bringing our specialist knowledge and expertise in large-scale housing refurbishments to this important scheme. This is a significant programme of improvements that will provide major benefits to residents living in the Manor Farm community.”

Resident consultation and planning is now taking place, with the 12-month programme of work set to start in January 2017.

The redevelopment of the Spirit Quarters area has already seen more than 500 new homes built and 1,000 existing homes improved.
