Housing and care provider Sanctuary has appointed Seddon Construction and Keepmoat to deliver more than 1,100 homes in the North and the Midlands over the next four years.
Sanctuary received an investment of almost £90m from the Homes and Communities Agency at the end of last year through its Affordable Homes Programme, and is now working on its four-year development programme to deliver more than 3,600 homes across England, involving a total investment of £500m.
The appointment of Seddon and Keepmoat forms an important part of Sanctuary’s development programme and will not only help sustain existing employment, it will also see the creation of numerous jobs and training opportunities for local people.
Peter Martin, Sanctuary’s group director – development, said: “These important appointments will bring a vital boost to local economies at sites across the Midlands, Yorkshire and Humberside, and result in the delivery of more than a thousand affordable homes by 2015.
“Creating employment opportunities is a key priority for Sanctuary, which is why we have selected partners that share our aims.”
