Esh Construction has commenced work on the initial phase of an affordable housing development at Seaham Garden Village in County Durham, England, UK. 

Partnering with registered provider Karbon Homes, Esh is set to deliver 750 affordable homes as part of this 78ha garden village project, situated along the A182 road leading into Seaham’s town centre. 

Karbon Homes Development and Regeneration director Sarah Robson said: “We’re pleased to announce Esh Construction as our construction partner for the first phase of this scheme.  

“We have worked well together elsewhere to deliver good-quality, affordable homes, and we look forward to seeing progress on this site and new homes becoming available later in the year for people looking to live in a beautiful garden village environment.” 

Seaham Garden Village will feature a new primary school, convenience retail outlets, and health and well-being facilities.  

The development will allocate around 50% of its area to managed green spaces, with more than three miles of landscaped paths and cycle routes.

The new homes will adhere to the latest building standards, incorporating energy-efficient technologies such as solar photovoltaic panels and battery storage units.  

The goal is said to be for all 750 homes at the site to achieve net-zero carbon emissions. 

Esh Construction CEO Andy Radcliff said: “We are proud to be chosen as construction partner by Karbon for the exciting and innovative Seaham Garden Village development.

“With a spade in the ground on the first phase, this marks a key milestone in our strategic growth plans as we capitalise on a number of major project wins within the affordable housing sector and help registered providers deliver more quality, much-needed affordable homes.” 

Karbon Homes will release initial homes by this year’s end, offering affordable rental and ownership opportunities, including shared ownership and rent-to-buy options.  

Funding from Homes England, part of the housing association’s strategic partnership with the national government’s housing delivery agency, supports this initiative.  

Last year, Esh Construction teamed up with Accent Housing to rehabilitate the former Ripleyville Estate in Bradford and deliver 73 new affordable housing units.
