HOLLAND Build has started work on Phase 3 of Broughton Gate, the third scheme the contractors have won to develop the eastern expansion of Milton Keynes for a private commercial investment company.
One of the Northampton-based company's latest projects, it is a £2.5 million build of multi-use development. Once complete, in spring 2019, it will include retail, residential and commercial spaces and a medical centre.
Tom Holland, Managing Director of Holland Build, is delighted to have won the contract and works are progressing well, now four weeks into the build with the steel frame completed.
"We have already completed Phase 1 and Phase 2 at Broughton Gate and while we take nothing for granted, hoped that our commitment to delivering on time and on budget would help us secure work on this latest development," he said.
"I am really delighted with our on-site team who work hard to maintain such high standards. Phase 1 was delivered to time and budget and Phase 2 was on budget with the retail units handed over four weeks ahead of schedule."
Holland Build is a client-focused commercial contracting company set up in 1985. The company works with a wide range of clients in the public, private and care sectors that are looking for a contractor that is prepared and capable of delivering a bespoke service.
Alongside the commercial projects Holland Build also works within the housing sector, whether it is developer-led housing schemes or large bespoke one-off homes. This is a key field within the organisation having recently completed a £1.1 million 4,500 square foot home in Buckinghamshire and £1 million 7,500 square foot home in Warwickshire, all under Holland Build's in-house Design & Build service
Together with the commencement of Phase 3 of Broughton Gate, Holland Build is also working to complete a new build office block in Milton Keynes approaching handover.
Holland Build has also been awarded a new-build facility with Persimmon Homes Midlands, the £1.2million community centre is now half way through on-site construction with a handover at the end of September 2018.
The contractors are working on behalf of Persimmon Homes Midlands through the Section 106 scheme which obliges developers to invest in projects that will help to reduce the impact housebuilding has on the community.
The multi-use centre promises to be at the heart of the community which is part of the ongoing expansion of Milton Keynes. A sports hall and meeting rooms are included in the scheme. Holland Build is working closely with Northampton-based APC Architects & Planning Consultants and JPP Engineers to deliver this Design and Build scheme for the community of Cranfield.
"A successful project being delivered on time and to a budget relies on each business working closely together throughout the process," added Tom.
Holland Build has been awarded the contract to refurbish, restore and extend St Edmunds Hospital in the centre of Northampton. The contractor is working closely with the clients design team and listed buildings on this challenging scheme.
The former Northampton Union Workhouse was built in 1836 to the designs of eminent architect G Gilbert Scott, whose work includes St Pancras in London. Rochmills Group, part of Hampton Healthcare Group, took over the site a few years ago. After a lengthy planning process, Holland Build was given the go-ahead to undertake the project to the Wellingborough Road site in April 2018.
To add to the order book, the contractors are due to start a 15-unit residential scheme in Bedfordshire later this year due for completion June 2019 and a new 5,000 square foot house in Northamptonshire all under the contractor's Design & Construct Service.
