Rydon wins £11m Horley development

9 Jul 13 Thames Valley Housing Association (TVHA) has picked Rydon to build an £11.3m housing and retail development on the site of the former Newman House office block in Horley, Surrey.

The scheme will comprise 90 one- and two-bedroom apartments with shared courtyard space built above 1,100 square metres of commercial space and car parking for 89 vehicles. The development will be six-storeys at its highest point.

TVHA will offer 75 of the homes on a shared ownership basis with the remaining 15 available through affordable rent. The retail space will comprise one large unit of around 500 square metres and three smaller units of around 200 square metres.

Rydon Construction managing director Mark Mitchener said: “This is a significant scheme for the town and we will ensure local subcontractors reap the benefits throughout the construction process. We also intend to support the next generation of the construction industry through a training programme for young people in the area.”

The development is scheduled for completion in spring 2015 and forms part of the master plan for the regeneration of Horley, which includes 2,600 new homes, better public transport and improved recreation and leisure facilities.
