A prosperous start to the year in the multi-room sector for Winvic Construction Ltd., as the multidisciplinary main contractor secures another scheme, this time comprising 237 build-to-rent apartments. Spaces for retailers, cafes and restaurants and an undercroft car park will also shape the nine storey building that will be completed for client Abode Hallam Ltd. in August 2019.
We’re delighted to have secured this project, which is due to commence on site this month for delivery in August 2019, and I’m very much looking forward to building a lasting relationship with Abode Hallam and Grainger
Mark Jones, Director for Multi-room
This scheme, funded by the UK’s largest listed residential landlord, Grainger plc, will help complete the transformation of the area around Napier Street and Summerfield Street, west of Sheffield’s centre; the block of 56 studios, 81 one bedroom and 100 two bedroom apartments will provide regeneration to a site that has been unoccupied for many years. Located a short walk to The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University campuses, as well as the city, the project that includes a living roof will provide more in demand high-quality rental opportunities for the people of Sheffield.
Winvic’s growth in delivering schemes in the private rented sector and the team’s ability to foster open relationships has positioned it as the best contractor for this project. Construction is scheduled to begin on Monday, 29 January 2018, and it will officially mark the first time that Winvic has worked with Abode Hallam and Grainger.
Winvic’s Director for Multiroom, Mark Jones, said: “Our team and I have been working with the client, fund and design team over the last year, developing the design and engineering value into the scheme. We’re delighted to have secured this project, which is due to commence on site this month for delivery in August 2019, and I’m very much looking forward to building a lasting relationship with Abode Hallam and Grainger.”
Abode Hallam’s Jason Sobey, added: “We’re pleased to be developing this project which is addressing a shortfall in living space around Sheffield city centre. Winvic is making strides and winning awards in the multi-room sector across the country so this delivery partnership with them is an exciting one.”
Ed Ellerington, PRS Acquisitions Director at Grainger plc, said: “We believe the creation of 237 high quality homes, built specifically for the rental market will be significant for Sheffield’s city centre housing needs and regeneration, and we’re delighted to have Winvic and Abode Hallam’s experience on board to deliver this scheme.”
