At Borras Construction, we’re committed to delivering works efficiently, whilst understanding the vision of our clients and their communities. This project, carried out in partnership with Slough Urban Renewal Community Projects LLP, involved extensive planning and delivery to achieve the completed new builds.

In September 2017, we set up site in Slough, in preparation for the early stages of works to begin on the first plot of new homes. The sites in phase two, located in Britwell and Northborough included redundant garage spaces and the site of the old run-down Lynch Pin public house. The delivered scheme of 16 new homes include a mixture of semi-detached houses and wheelchair accessible bungalows. The works involved the design and construction of contemporary new build homes across various plots, with external landscaping. New furnishings were installed throughout with modern kitchens and bathrooms, garden spaces were also created with the inclusion of sheds for each home. Details of the seven completed sites:

  • The former Lynch Pin public house, six new semi-detached houses with parking
  • Land to rear of 40 Pemberton Road, a new wheelchair accessible bungalow on old garage site
  • Land to rear of 14-26 Gascons Grove, two new semi-detached homes with parking on old garage site
  • Land to rear of 8 Egerton Road, two new semi-detached homes with parking on old garage site
  • Thirlmere Avenue, four new semi-detached homes with parking on a redundant parking area
  • Land to rear of 14-26 Gascons Grove, two new semi-detached homes with parking on old garage site
  • Furlong Drive, six new semi-detached homes with parking on unused land a the road end.

The works were challenging, with sites running simultaneously, arranging deliveries and resources whilst working within tight and restricted spaces. We worked with Kendall Kingscott to deliver the project, which was handed over in June 2018.

“By transforming various small sites, we are improving local communities and contributing to the council’s demand for housing which will benefit all.”
