£12m of new work builds on successful start to 2017 by Lovell

12th, July

Lovell has built on the firm’s successful start to 2017 by securing three new contracts with a combined value of over £12 million.

The company has been appointed by Clarion Housing Group for two schemes worth £2.9 million which will create 24 much-needed affordable rented homes in east Leeds, at sites in Seacroft and near Halton.

Work is under way by Lovell on 14 modern, energy-efficient two-bed houses at the Sutton Park estate as part of Clarion Housing Group’s ongoing regeneration of the area.

The company also recently began building 10 two- and three-bedroom homes for Clarion at the site of the former Baileys House care home in Seacroft. In Hull, Lovell, as part of Compendium Living – is starting work on a £9.3 million, 68-home development in the Ings area. The scheme, the latest phase of developer Compendium Living’s major regeneration programme in partnership with Hull City Council, will create two-, three- and four-bedroom homes for Compendium, mostly for open market sale, and a number of affordable rented properties.  

The first homes to be built through the Ings regeneration programme – 65 new homes for rent, shared ownership and outright sale – were completed by Lovell in August 2016. Compendium Living is also creating 83 affordable homes for Together Housing, which make up the second phase of the Ings redevelopment. These homes are under construction by us and expected to be completed by March 2018.

Regional managing director Robert Adams says: “The company continues to win work across the region thanks to our focus on long-term partnership working coupled with our ability to bring forward land for development and create high-quality new homes across a range of tenures, from affordable housing to properties for sale on the open market.

“We’re delighted to have been appointed to these important projects for Clarion Housing Group and Compendium Living, which will each deliver much-needed new homes.” Lovell expects to build over 200 homes in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Humberside as a whole during 2017.
