WCN Editorial Team 16 Feb 2022 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Construction firm Graham has secured a contract from Peel L&P for the construction of a £130m housing project at Wirral Waters in the UK.

The new residential development is expected to become the biggest single development at Wirral Waters so far.

Named Wirral Waters One, it will include the construction of 500 one- and two-bedroom waterfront apartments.

The company stated that the appointment of contractor follows an agreement signed last month between Peel L&P and Pension Insurance to fund the new housing project.

Wirral Waters One will also include 100 affordable new homes.

Using energy efficient and low carbon technologies, the new project is designed to reduce carbon emissions.

The new homes in the development are also designed to be ‘resource efficient’ by reducing wastage, prioritising natural lighting, reducing water and energy consumption, and using sustainable, energy efficient heating.

Residents of the project will also have access to electric vehicle charging points and cycling storage.

Scheduled to begin construction in spring this year, Wirral Waters One will be situated adjacent to other residential projects East Float, a joint venture project between Peel L&P and Urban Splash, and the Belong Care Village.

Graham Building Division regional director Peter Reavey said: “We are delighted to have been appointed as the contractor to develop these new homes for Peel L&P at Wirral Waters.

“At Graham, our focus is on ‘delivering lasting impact’, and this scheme, which includes 500 apartments, of which 100 are affordable new homes, will allow us to continue this proud tradition of constructing homes in the heart of the local communities where we operate.”
