United House has been awarded the £7.8m contract for the second phase of a new mixed tenure residential development in Courtauld Road, designed by Stephen Davy Peter Smith and Pollard Thomas & Edwards architects. The site is split into two sections, East site and West site, currently occupied by light industrial and residential buildings.
United House refurbish a Victorian warehouse to create 15 apartments, along with the construction of four new blocks to deliver a total of 52 homes: 20 for general rent, 10 shared ownership and 22 for private sale.
Technical challenges include the incorporation of an electrical sub-station into one of the new East site blocks.
Work starts on site this month and is expected to complete in autumn 2014.
