The company will provide a full design and build package of piles and ground beams for approximately 235 new homes on a residential development at Boothferry Park on the former home of Hull City Football Club.

Stent House Foundations is a joint venture between Balfour Beatty Ground Engineering and GKPS. The latter is a partnership set up in 2007 by Kris Hand and Grahame Newton to form the Stent House Foundations joint venture.

The ground beam system for the Hull development will be manufactured at the Balfour Beatty Ground Engineering precast pile factory in Nottinghamshire, the largest driven pile factory in the UK.

Accommodation built during the initial phase of the development is already fully occupied, with the final phases due for completion in 2014.

Strata Homes group commercial director Mark Rosindale said: “We have worked with Stent House Foundations a number of times and we have been really impressed with the quality of their system, their commitment to health and safety and their approach to working with our team and it made sense to continue our relationship with them for this project.”

Balfour Beatty Ground Engineering managing director Malcolm O’Sullivan said: “We are high quality providers of precast ground-beam packages and have been growing our place in the housing and low rise development market.

“This contract is our largest ever at £1.3m and we look forward to delivering on our reputation for delivery, quality and safety for Strata Homes.”
