Builder named for Nor­ton Road

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

AN AF­FORD­ABLE hous­ing de­vel­op­ment in Wok­ing­ham has taken a large step for­ward with the ap­point­ment of a builder.

Wok­ing­ham Hous­ing, which is over­see­ing the de­vel­op­ment in Nor­ton Road, has ap­pointed High Wy­combe-based build­ing con­trac­tor LIFEBuild, who will be re­spon­si­ble for the pro­ject’s con­struc­tion.

LIFEBuild won the con­tract fol­low­ing a com­pet­i­tive ten­der process, and was cho­sen be­cause the com­pany of­fered good value for money com­bined with a strong track record in the sec­tor.

The de­vel­op­ment, on the site of a former print works, will pro­vide a mixed ten­ure de­vel­op­ment of three af­ford­able rented houses, and six shared own­er­ship apart­ments.

Build­ing work is ex­pected to be­gin in Novem­ber, with the first res­i­dents ex­pected to move in by October next year.

Bill Flood, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of Wok­ing­ham Hous­ing Lim­ited said: “We are de­lighted to have ap­pointed an award-win­ning builder lo­cal to the South-East. They are al­ready build­ing our scheme for young care leavers at 52 Read­ing Road and we have been im­pressed by the way they have ap­proached and pro­gressed this par­tic­u­lar de­vel­op­ment. We are con­fi­dent they will bring their val­ues of qual­ity and cost-ef­fec­tive­ness to the Nor­ton Road de­vel­op­ment.”
