Esh Border Construction is helping the drive to ease housing demand in the North-west of England after delivering a host of affordable homes projects.
The Cumbria-based firm has been involved in seven builds totalling almost £20m in the last year as part of company-wide plans to help a number of housing associations bring attractive, high quality housing to the region.
The projects — across Cumbria — will help to meet housing demand in areas where there is an urgent need for new developments, and will get dozens of young families onto the property ladder.
Steve Beattie, Esh Border Construction Operations Director, said: “We are very proud of our role in delivering essential housing to the North-west. Across each project, the team has worked very hard to deliver attractive, affordable homes without compromising on a desire to create sustainable family homes that are sympathetic to the surrounding area.
“The feedback from the communities and clients we serve has been that this has been very much the case, and as much as these projects are a routine part of the work of Esh Border Construction, it is always a pleasure to see them come to fruition as we begin to see the first families move in and lay down roots.”
The projects include three for Two Castles Housing Association in Cumbria totalling £12.5m, bringing 84 new homes to Grange-over-Sands (Berners Close pictured above) and Kendal — all of which were built to incorporate the latest guidelines for the construction of sustainable homes.
- The construction of 43 homes using natural slate and stone elevations with a build value of £6.5m in Grange-over-Sands, Cumbria
- A £3.8m project to build 27 new two-, three-, four-bedroom homes in Windermere Road, Kendal, Cumbria
- A £2.2m scheme in Kendal’s Burland Grove to transform a brownfield site, which had been vacant for more than 20 years, with the construction of 14 new-build timber frame homes
Esh Border Construction also completed 12 high-quality two and three-bedroom homes and a block of eight two-storey flats using traditional materials at a brownfield site in Low Demesne, Ingleton, North Yorkshire, for Yorkshire Housing Association valued at £1.92m.
In keeping with a desire to produce affordable homes, which are sympathetic to their surroundings, the company undertook the £1.7m construction of 10 traditional energy-efficient semi-detached houses and bungalows for South Lakes Housing in Binfold Croft, Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria.
Other projects included 18 two- and three-bedroom homes for Riverside Housing Association in Ashness Drive, Carlisle, Cumbria to the value of £1.88m and the £1.5m construction of five blocks of two houses and one block of three houses in Ladyseat, Longtown, Cumbria also for Riverside Housing Association.
