Grand Union Housing Group’s 1,000th built home!

Last month the Grand Union Housing Group celebrated the completion of their 1,000th built home.
Since the innovative leading provider and developer of affordable housing formed six years ago, they have now completed the 1000th new build home at Sandy Road, Everton, constructed by Parrott Construction.
The celebratory event was attended by the Grand Union Housing team, Parrott Construction, the press and many other visitors.
The attendees grouped at the development at; 71-85 Sandy Road, Everton, Bedfordshire, SG19 2JU on Thursday 24th July at 1pm.
The site, which was previously greenfield agricultural land, consisted of the design and build of 8 dwellings and associated works (six homes on an affordable rent basis together with two homes available on a shared ownership basis).
The two bedroomed property which is the 1,000th home on the development, will be sold with a shared ownership.
The scheme met ‘Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3’, thus aiming to reduce carbon emissions and promote higher standards of sustainable design in terms of energy and water efficiency.
Our Client, Jonathan Lord, Development Officer at Grand Union Housing Group praised the team at Parrott Construction: “Considering this was a Rural Exception site, from inception to Practical Completion it was just over 18 months, which is brilliant.
“We cannot fault Parrott Construction in any aspect of the project.
“It was a very well managed site and contract, no negatives at all. Excellence from Parrott Construction is standard.”
The Group, the parent company of Aragon and MacIntyre Housing Associations and South Northants Homes, is on schedule to build 185 homes in total this year.
Dave Lakin, Head of New Business and Development, stated; “This is a major milestone for the Group and comes on top of the 535 new homes we have previously built through our subsidiary Aragon.
“Such is the shortage of housing across our area in Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire this still does not meet the demand for high quality affordable homes.
“We are committed to building homes and communities for the long term.”
The team here at Parrott Construction were delighted to be involved in such an exciting event and are proud to have been responsible for building the 1,000th home. We look forward to working with the team at Grand Union again in the future.
