New housing project of 23 homes opens in Rugby

Posted: 08/12/14 by GSSArchitecture

The Quantity Surveyors division of Northamptonshire-based architectural practice GSSArchitecture attended the opening ceremony of a new housing development in Hillmorton, also known as Sewell Place on Tuesday 25 November.

Guests included members of the Rugby Borough Council, Wates Construction, Bill Sewell and the new occupants. The housing scheme has created 23 new homes for Rugby Borough Council’s tenants, including four one-bedroom maisonettes, 12 two-bedroom houses, and seven three-bedroom houses.

A total of 43 off-road parking spaces have also been created and solar panels have been added on all homes, which will reduce the cost of energy bills. The houses replaced 14 sheltered flats and 24 flats for single tenants in Pettiver Crescent, which had become outdated.

The Council employed GSSArchitecture as the Employer’s Agent, Quantity Surveyors and CDM Co-ordinators.

GSSArchitecture Partner, Ian Bray, said: “We are delighted to see the completion of these new homes, which has provided the community with a range of high quality properties.”

Councillor Leigh Hunt said: "We are delighted with the new homes at Sewell Place. More importantly, the feedback from the tenants that have moved into them is that they too are delighted. This project is part of a number of measures the Council is taking to meet housing needs. The development also shows the Council's commitment to invest in the future at a time when many councils across the country have cut services and sold assets."
