Kier has been named preffered bidder for a 400-home development in Northamption, worth up to £60m.
The Homes and Communities Agency awarded the contract for the mixed-tenure regeneration project, comprising 400 houses and flats for affordable rent and market sale.
The scheme forms part of the Northampton Brownfield Initiative, including three public spaces and two bridges.
Charles Amies, HCA’s head of area for the midlands south-east, commented: “We are pleased to have Kier on board so we can move forward and get on site at Ransome Road.”
“We know through working closely with Northampton Borough Council that the site is a local priority – it will deliver much-needed new homes for the Borough as well as being a key part of the town’s growth, which will create further homes and jobs for local people.”
Kier Partnership Homes’ managing director, Chris King, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen once again by the HCA to work with them to deliver this much anticipated and prestigious scheme in Northampton.”
“This opportunity reinforces our commitment to providing high quality affordable homes within a mixed tenure context.
“The commitment of the HCA and Northampton Borough Council has enabled us to propose a modern design to maximise the currently derelict site, creating a vibrant new community.”
