Basildon Council were looking for new build companies to work on an exciting home construction project. We were delighted to be chosen as the construction firm of choice. Our construction contractors’ work comprised all necessary demolition and the design and construction of 9 new affordable homes, including; seven one and two-bed apartments and two and two-bed houses complete with associated drainage and services alterations, all infrastructure, external hard and soft landscaping.
As part of its shared ownership new homes delivery programme, Sempra is working in partnership with Homes England and is supporting Basildon Council with its ambition to give priority to the borough’s key workers to access housing. Key workers include nurses, teachers, police and other public servants.
The residential construction project has been developed using traditional methods of construction consisting of mass concrete strip foundations, brick and block walls with beam and block flooring at ground floor. Precast planks will be used for upper floors to all flats and engineered timber floor joists to the houses. Roofs will be constructed using off-site fabricated roof trusses, with the exception of the second floor of flats which will be constructed in a steel framed pitch with cut and pitched timber infill. All roofs including bays and dormers with have concrete tiled coverings.
