Construction firm secures tender to transform county garage sites
By Matt Hall | 11th October 2019
Quedgeley-based construction firm, Aqua Construction has won a competitive tender to build 15 new affordable properties across four sites for Gloucester City Homes (GCH).
The mix of houses and bungalows will be constructed in Quedgeley, Hucclecote, Tuffley, and Coney Hill, supplying local residents with new housing for affordable rent and shared ownership.
Replacing underutilised garage sites, these four new developments will significantly improve their neighbourhoods and will provide a safer and more secure environment for new and existing tenants of the area.
Aqua Construction will build the new homes to the most stringent energy-efficiency standards, delivering warm and cost-effective homes for local families.
Detailed design and site enabling works are now underway, with completion planned for Autumn 2020.
These contracts continue a highly successful relationship between GCH and Aqua Construction, involving the 130th property built together since 2015. Both parties are extremely proud to be helping provide the community of Gloucestershire with much needed new affordable housing.
Jason Wasley, managing director of Aqua Construction, commented, "All of us at Aqua Construction are so pleased to be delivering more affordable houses in Gloucester for GCH.
"Thanks to Aqua's significant experience of building affordable houses for registered providers of social housing, we have developed a keen understanding of what our clients and their tenants want in a home. We are delighted to be providing this for another 15 local families."
