Anderson lands £10m Redrow groundworks deal

Published

on

Anderson will be responsible for all groundworks and infrastructure including drainage, water management, carriageways and footways on The Parklands site which will eventually contain  2,500 three- and four-bedroom homes.

The company has also been awarded the groundworks for phase three of a 160-home Hopkins Homes development at the former Needham Market quarry.

Andrew Nowosad, Associate Commercial Director of Construction at Anderson, said: “A huge amount of hard-work and effort has gone into securing future workload to the wider business.

“This has been a very challenging year for the industry, but the building sector has bounced back bigger and stronger than ever before which bodes well for the wider economy.

“A rise in new construction work across the country has seen our output in the industry reach its highest level since January 2020.

“This has been a superb few months for our business and both the Parklands project and the Needham market development are very exciting to be involved in.”

Anderson secured the first phase of the Parklands development in September 2020. The second phase will take the order value for the whole Great Wilsey development close to £20m.

Nowosad added: “Both projects clearly demonstrate the importance of securing the first phase on multi-phase developments, which then present opportunities as subsequent phases come on stream.

“I would like to congratulate the whole team for securing these key additions to existing projects following the continued hard work from the site teams in maintaining our excellent reputation.”

The Partnership’s ambitious masterplan for the project has capacity for up to 2,800 homes in a major mixed-use canal-side town centre with a forecast development value of £1.7bn.

The project will involve restoration of an historic canal basin, and a generous mix of retail, including a 130,000 sq ft Sainsbury’s, leisure, community and small business workspace.

As part of this project, a new 130,000 sq ft Sainsbury’s store will provide a fresh, modern approach to trading with increased capacity for home delivery services. The agreement will ensure continuity of trading within the existing store until the day the new store opens.

Sean Mulryan, Chairman of Ballymore, said: “Partnerships like this one show the type of innovative approach needed to tackle London’s housing shortage.

“We are pleased to be a step closer to submitting an application and realising our ambitions of a mixed-use scheme that will transform the area.

“We’ve commenced early consultation with local stakeholders and look forward to hearing directly from local people how they envisage the future site can best suit the needs of the local community”.

The money will promote cycling and walking across the country and further increase the construction of bike lanes.

The government said: “This funding will help see the construction of hundreds of miles of new high-quality cycle lanes.”

A new version of the Highway Code is also being published which “ensures road users who can do the greatest harm have the greatest responsibility to reduce the danger they may pose to others.”

The new code will also give “guidance on safe passing distances and speeds and ensuring that cyclists have priority at junctions when travelling straight ahead.”

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said: “Millions of us have found over the past year how cycling and walking are great ways to stay fit, ease congestion on the roads and do your bit for the environment.

“As we build back greener from the pandemic, we’re determined to keep that trend going by making active travel easier and safer for everyone.

“This £338 million package marks the start of what promises to be a great summer of cycling and walking, enabling more people to make those sustainable travel choices that make our air cleaner and cities greener.”
