Contractor Osborne has completed a £12.8 million housing development for Golding Homes on the former council depot and park and ride site in Maidstone, Kent
The development provides 131 new homes and is a mix of affordable and market-priced homes consisting of flats and houses. The first site on Armstrong Road is made up of 96 homes, including two and three story terraced housing and a four storey block of flats. The second site on Enterprise Road consists of 35 homes, with a mix of two and three storey housing and a three storey block of flats.
All the buildings have been fitted with photovoltaic cells, water butts, composters, productive planting beds and communal bin stores, which has helped the development achieve a Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) Level 4. Innovaré Systems supplied the i-SIPs panels for the scheme.
Paul Ensch, head of Osborne’s homes team, said:
“This was a complex development across two sites that needed a coordinated approach to minimise disruption to the local area. By working with Innovaré and using i-SIPs we were able to significantly cut build times and deliver these properties to Golding Homes in a much shorter timeframe.”
