WCN Editorial Team 1 Jul 2021 EUROPE BUILDINGS

UK-based construction firm Tolent has secured a contract worth £17.7m from housing association Yorkshire Housing to construct 113 new affordable homes in Menston, West Yorkshire.

The company is planning to use a mix of modern methods of construction (MMC) on a number of units in the project.

This development will include a mix of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes and will be available for a mix of tenures on the bases of affordable rent, shared ownership and right to buy.

The construction company stated that the new project will be delivered in support with funding from Homes England.

Construction work on new homes is scheduled to commence later this summer with completion expected in spring 2024.

Yorkshire Housing growth and assests executive director Andy Gamble said: “This is the first site that we’re looking to use structurally insulated panels for the build and we’re also considering a number of different smart tech options for the finished homes.

“This will mean greater resident control and it’ll also make it easier for us to monitor the energy performance of our rental homes.

“Our progress means we can deliver more, much needed homes to the region and continue working towards our strategic priority of delivering 8,000 homes by 2030. We’re delighted that our hard work will give hundreds of people an opportunity to move into a high quality new home.”

Recently, Tolent also secured a string of new contracts in Yorkshire including a £2.6m project to construct 14 affordable homes in Batley and a £4.1m contract for 32 new homes in Kirkbymoorside.

The company is set to deliver approximately 3,000 new homes across Yorkshire and the northeast covering both the private and public sector.
