QUANTITY SURVEYOR: Faithful & Gould
VALUE: £2,710,000
CONTRACT PERIOD: 55 Weeks

Borras were awarded this contract on behalf of Harlow District Council to construct 18 new build terraced and semi detached houses across three separate sites in Harlow.

The job was part of Harlow Council’s Pathfinder Project, a scheme designed to transform disused and under utilised or cleared residential garage sites into high quality and sustainable homes to meet the demand for affordable rental homes in Harlow, they were the first council houses built in Harlow since the 1980’s.

Sites at The Hill and Fesants Croft both saw 7 two bed houses constructed, with another 4 two bed homes provided at the Felmongers Site. All works included associated hard and soft landscaping together with the provision of a total of 56 parking spaces, which is hoped will ease existing congestion problems.

All of the properties met Harlow Council’s space standards for new homes which are contained within the Harlow Design Guide and the Lifetime Homes Standards.
