Lovell wins £9m contract for sustainable homes in Norfolk

Morgan Sindall’s affordable housing arm Lovell has won a £9 million contract to build energy efficient homes in Thetford, Norfolk.

The development, for housing association Flagship Peddars Way, includes 66 homes, flats and bungalows for social housing. The scheme will receive £3.8m of funding from the Homes and Communities Agency and £500,000 from Breckland Council.

Affordable homes specialist Lovell will build the first phase of 22 properties at Sweyn Close / Fulmerston Road to Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. They will be 44 per cent more energy-efficient than properties built to current Building Regulations. The second phase of 44 homes will be built to Level 3 of the Code.

Laura Handford, strategic projects manager for Flagship, said: “The homes will help to regenerate the Barnham Cross Estate with good quality, energy-efficient homes, creating a community where people want to live.”

The first phase is expected to be complete in March 2012 with the second due a year later.
