Keepmoat wins £10m council contracts

Housing and regeneration firm Keepmoat, which is celebrating ten years of working in Nottingham, has won two new contracts, worth a combined £10m.


The contracts, awarded by Nottingham City Homes and Nottingham City Council, will see Keepmoat begin work to build 48 new homes in Cranwell Road in the Strelley area of the city, and 54 new properties in The Meadows. The Meadows development is set to be the first social housing project in the UK to be built using building information modelling (BIM) technology. The process involves the creation of a digital 3D model of the build to minimise issues and maximise cost savings. The scheme will also include eight homes built to ‘Passivhaus’ standards using alternative methods of construction.Martin Smithurst, regional managing director at Keepmoat, said: “These are significant contract wins for Keepmoat, and continue our involvement in the ongoing development of Nottingham. We are looking forward to working with our partners and the local community on these exciting schemes.” Steve Hale, director of property services at Nottingham City Homes, added: “We’re delighted to appoint the Keepmoat team to deliver our Meadows and Cranwell Road developments. We have been working with the team over the past ten years as they continue to deliver high quality schemes, providing both value for money and significant social impact, such as the employment and progression of a large number of apprentices, as well as a range of community initiatives. “Our ‘Building a Better Nottingham’ programme continues to transform neighbourhood across the city and these large sites in The Meadows and Strelley will make a huge difference to the surrounding community, providing families and individuals with sustainable, warm, secure and modern homes, as well as dramatically improving the street scene.”
