Willmott Dixon to deliver $52m housing scheme in the UK

The Block D development, which will feature 96 council-rented homes and commercial space, is planned to be completed in 2023.

The London Borough of Hounslow in the UK has awarded a contract to property developer Willmott Dixon to deliver a $51.9m (£38m) housing scheme in Brentford.

Willmott Dixon will be responsible for delivering the Block D development comprising three blocks, ranging from six to eight stories.

The blocks will feature 96 council-rented homes that would be a mix of one, two, three and four-bed apartments. Of the 96 homes, ten will be designed to support wheelchairs.

Planned for completion in summer 2023, the scheme will also feature 12 retail units, communal gardens and car parking spaces.

This housing scheme forms part of Hounslow’s wider plan to build 1,000 new homes in the council to help address surging demand in the region.

Willmott Dixon senior operations manager Matt Kemp said: “We are delighted to be again working in partnership with the London Borough of Hounslow to create more essential housing and important commercial space.

“Through our network of local supply chain partners, we will be supporting the Hounslow pound alongside delivering much-needed places to live.”

With a view of supporting the 2030 zero-carbon goal of the council, the homes are planned to be 100% electric with an Air Source Heat Pump system.

This system will help provide hot water and heating to residents.

London Borough of Hounslow leader Steve Curran said: “We’ve worked tirelessly with our partners, Willmott Dixon, to make sure these homes are of high-quality and energy-efficient to meet the needs of our residents.”

Recently, Willmott Dixon was selected as a contractor by Rochdale Borough Council for a £60m regeneration project in Greater Manchester, UK.

Located next to the new Rochdale Riverside retail and leisure development, the Upperbanks project features 242 new apartments and a Hampton by Hilton hotel in the Rochdale town centre.
