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.

Borras are working with architects GSS Architecture to deliver the scheme, with completion scheduled for early 2017.
