Lovell to build £5.8m Hounslow housing scheme

Morgan Sindall’s affordable housing arm Lovell has won a £5.8 million deal to deliver 41 energy-efficient affordable homes in Hounslow, west London.

Lovell will build a four-storey building housing a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments and maisonettes on the Heston Farm estate, for the London Borough of Hounslow and Hounslow Homes.

The new housing will create 19 homes for affordable rent and five for intermediate rent through Hounslow Homes; 17 homes will be for open market sale by Lovell. The scheme is the first phase of Hounslow Council and Hounslow Homes’ major regeneration programme for six estates in the Heston area which has been developed in close consultation with residents.

Construction work on the year-long development is set to start in March 2011.

Designed by Sprunt Architects, the new building will take the form of a ‘u’ shape with an internal courtyard. All homes will have some outside space with either a private garden or balcony.

The properties will meet Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes, the system for measuring the environmental performance of new housing. That means they will be 44 per cent more energy-efficient than homes built to current building regulations, reducing energy bills for residents. Sustainable features will include solar thermal panels on the south-east and south-west facing roofs to generate renewable energy for heating water.
