Casey's construction division has been given a boost with two exciting project wins in the North West.  The schemes reflect the increasing need for quality affordable housing and will help to alleviate increasing pressures on social housing waiting lists.  Both of these schemes were procured through the JV North Contractors' Framework.

We are delighted to be working with Helena Partnerships again on an exciting new development of 27 properties in St Helens.

This is a design and build contract on an infill site between Egerton and Gower Streets.  The scheme comprises 17 two-bed, two storey houses and 10 three-bed, two storey houses.  The dwellings have been designed to achieve low energy and carbon emissions to meet current Building Regulations Part L, using thermally efficient and airtight construction.  Heating and hot water requirements will be met using condensing boilers.

The scheme will achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3.

The second scheme is Casey's first for New Charter Housing Association.

This scheme comprises 12 high quality apartments, arranged in two buildings.  The arrangement of the buildings along the street edges to the north and west wraps around a south facing area to provide a sunny shared garden court.  The garden will also benefit from the retention of mature sycamore trees on the southern boundary.

The existing site sits within a residential area which is a mix of social and privately owned housing, and this scheme is designed to 'knit together' the street scene and complete the line of development in a charismatic mannner.

The properties have been designed in line with Standards and Quality in Development, Lifetime Homes and Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3.  These standards will result in apartments that are flexible and adaptable as well as energy efficient.
