Completion of new green homes in Bromsgrove

A new £8.6M green home development in Bromsgrove has reached completion.

The housing development was delivered by Worcestershire base contractor, Speller Metcalfe on behalf of Bromsgrove District Council and is the first of its kind for the Council.

The development includes a mixture of social rent, private rent, shared ownership and market properties.

Demolition of the original Bromsgrove Council House site marked the start of works, creating room for the 18, two and three bed houses, 39 one-bed apartments and 4 two-bed maisonettes. These are a mixture of timber frame and steel frame dwellings.

Designed by Zebra Architects the homes are predicted to provide an 80% reduction in carbon emissions, supporting the sustainability goals of the council.

Cllr Shirley Webb, Bromsgrove District Council’s portfolio holder for Strategic Housing, said, “Our thanks to Speller Metcalfe who have done a top job here. We specified quality for these homes and we have got it, and we are happy to have increased the supply of high quality housing in the district. All that remains now is for us to complete the business of getting these properties into the hands of bdht, Spadesbourne Homes, and their other new owners, so that people can start living in them.”

The homes are energy efficient and include features such as integrated solar panels and battery storage and air source heat pumps that absorb heat form outside air to heat water and the homes. The council have worked to include these features to ensure a reduction in running costs and utility bills.

Mark Eaton, Divisional Director for Living, Speller Metcalfe said, “We’re really pleased to see the Burcot Lane housing development reach completion. After being on site for two years, we know that these homes will make a difference to the local communities housing requirements. As a local contractor we have a commitment to delivering sustainable and affordable housing for the long-term residents of Worcestershire.”

Speller Metcalfe is also responsible for all associated works including adopted roads and drainage, an electric sub-station, hard and soft landscaping.

The project was secured under the DPP3 Framework.
