Huxley Court, Alresford
Huxley Court is a full design and build contract of 45 units. The housing development is comprised of: 2 blocks of 5 two-bedroom terraced townhouses and 35 two and three-bedroom apartments split across 3 apartment blocks with undercroft parking.
Scope of Works
The demolition phase commenced in May. This involved the removal of warehouses and an office block, which were originally situated on the site.
The groundworks and remediation are scheduled to commence in June. As Huxley Court is situated on a sloping site, extensive bulk excavation works will be undertaken to reduce the incline. This will be followed by road works and foundations.
The superstructure build will commence thereafter. Traditional masonry walls, block and beam ground floor and plank upper floors will be used to build the townhouses. Whilst the apartments will be a mix of steel frames, block and beam ground floors and plank upper floors all with external masonry walls.
A new footpath will also be built to lead from the development down to the recreation park.
This development sees our second project involving Vivid Homes. It follows on from our main contractor build of 49 units at Ewshot Gardens in Church Crookham, where 20 of the units were for Sentinel Housing Association, now known as Vivid Homes following its merger with First Wessex HA.
Commercial Director, Matt Sainty commented: “Having successfully become a member of the Vivid Framework in 2018, we are pleased to be awarded this project. We look forward to a successful partnership with Vivid for years to come.”
The development will come to the market via Vivid in the first quarter of 2022.
