Borras first again for new housing
Borras are proud to have recently started on site in Haringey where we will be constructing the first new council homes in the Borough for more than 25 years. The £.7.7m design and build project follows on from last year when our Social Housing Division successfully delivered the first council houses in Harlow since the 1980’s (for more information about our Harlow Pathfinder Project, please click here).
The project, which is on behalf of the Haringey Council was awarded as three separate contracts and will involve the construction of 12 houses and 19 flats across 7 underutilised infill sites across the Borough.

The official start of the scheme was marked on Monday when Councillor Alan Strickland, Cabinet Member for Housing and Regeneration laid the first brick at Barnes Court, a former garage site which will soon be home to 4 three bedroom houses. Councillor Strickland commented “Every family in Haringey has the right to live in a modern, affordable high-quality homes, and these first new council houses demonstrate our commitment to making that a reality.”
Borras are working with architects GSS Architecture to deliver the scheme, with completion scheduled for early 2017.
In response to the Coronavirus outbreak, we are keen to reassure our employees, clients, project stakeholders and supply-chain partners, that we are taking the necessary precautions in relation to a healthy working environment across our sites and operations.
