Entrada Derby plans approved

Estrada Derby - an Innovative residential showcase for a new way of modular construction

Plans for 122 apartments off Raynesway on the city’s southside, have been approved.

The scheme, called Entrada Derby, will be developed by Blom International – a developer from the Netherlands, and was designed in partnership with Justin Smith Architects.

Tom Erskine from Marketing Derby said: “The site on Raynesway is intended to be an innovative residential showcase for a new way of modular construction in the UK that hasn’t been done before.

“The units would be constructed entirely from concrete off-site which makes them incredibly well-insulated, soundproof and spacious, as all the pipes and electric are built into the walls. The components are then assembled on-site.

“It is an incredibly innovative, green scheme that is unlike anything else in the Midlands.

“It would provide residents with significantly reduced energy costs in an impressive and unique environment at an important gateway into the city.”
