Waterloo Housing Association
Contract Duration:
13 Months
Project Description:
Construction of 18 New Affordable Homes
Design Team:
Pelham Architects : BSP Consulting Ltd

The development consists of an exciting mix of affordable 1,2 and 3 bedroom properties which provided accommodation for local residents and allowed them to stay in their community. The village is very unique so the houses blend beautifully into the surrounding area. To capture this, unique features were included in the design like dormer windows, walled gardens and timber door surrounds. Specific materials were used such as Flemish bond brickwork and walls with capping detail.

The project began with the demolition of vacant houses, removal of existing foundations, removal of all vegetation, trees and grassed areas. It also required the disconnection and diversion of gas and electric. Geda ensured work areas were kept completely separate from any interface with visitors and residents. Access routes and work areas were kept reasonably clean and tidy at all times. Debris netting was mounted on the separating fence to control dust and debris nuisance. The experienced project team ensured the project was completed on time.
