Work commences on Shoreham estate regeneration
06 December 2021
As the appointed contractor we will set out to demolish the existing 1960s flats to make way for the development, with the completed regeneration project adding a net gain of 34 affordable homes for social, rent and shared ownership.
The event was an opportunity to meet with residents, including David and Judy who were part of the contractor selection team which selected Real based on their core values and people-focussed inclusive culture.
Residents’ involvement was also encouraged in the co-design of the new building, working closely with the design team to create suitable living spaces, resulting in all new homes being accessible to people with limited mobility, and all will have private outdoor space.
Mark Unsworth, Regional Director at Real, said: “We are thrilled Southern Housing Group has chosen Real to build these 74 sustainable, affordable homes, we can’t wait to deliver a brilliant scheme.
“Buildings are so much more than just bricks and mortar and we recognise that good quality well designed homes form the bedrock of a successful community and the long term wellbeing of its residents.
“We are really pleased to be building homes for local people in Shoreham-by-Sea and pride ourselves on our ability to work with and understand the needs of the local community. With so many of the existing residents of the Mannings due to return to live here once the new homes are built, the event was a great opportunity for some of our team to meet them in person.”
Demolition work on the Mannings will commence on 13 December and construction is scheduled to last 116 weeks, completing in spring 2024.
