An update from site: Chichester Court
At Chichester Court, our development of 20 houses and six apartments for affordable rent, the team has been working hard to prepare for a phased handover.
Our client is the London Borough of Harrow, and we are looking forward to providing new affordable homes for the local community. Currently, we’re readying 12 houses to be handed over, and final preparations and snagging has taken place, along with client visits to ensure that the homes are all set for their new residents in the coming weeks.
Of the remaining eight homes and six maisonettes, work continues externally with groundworks and hard landscaping, with internal works being decorations and finishings. The project has been an intriguing build, involving the reconstruction of 400 metres of primary access road through the estate. This is together with diversions also necessary for utilities supplied to the 26 homes and existing residents, alongside new parking spaces, communal recreation areas and landscaping.
Chichester Court has also been visited regularly by the Considerate Constructors Scheme and we have seen their assessments here build positively and progressively. Our latest inspection saw the site awarded “Performance Beyond Compliance”, with the inspector commenting about their “very favourable” overall impression of the project, “creating a positive image in quite a challenging live residential environment”.
