Rugby Borough Council in the UK has hired construction company Willmott Dixon to deliver a new residential development project in the city.

The project was awarded under the Constructing West Midlands Capital Works Framework.

Named Biart Place, this £22m ($27.84m) housing project will see the construction of a total of 100 new affordable and sustainable housing units.

It has been designed by rg+p and will feature 60 one- and two-bedroom apartment units, 20 two-, three-, and four-bedroom houses, and 20 maisonettes.

Located on Clifton Road, the project reflects the Victorian-era houses on the neighbouring streets.

The scheme will utilise renewable energy generated by solar panels and air-source heat pumps.

Residents will also have access to electric vehicle charging stations.

Willmott director Michelle Cotterill said: “These affordable homes will provide much-needed provision in the area, while also delivering sustainable homes which are low carbon and energy efficient.

“The development is just part of the regeneration efforts taking place in Rugby and will deliver high-quality modern homes, helping to make the area a more attractive place for locals to stay and for others to consider relocating to.”

Rugby Borough Council communities, homes, digital and communications portfolio holder and councillor Tim Willis said: “We’re delighted to partner with Willmott Dixon to deliver our ambitious plans to develop Biart Place and build 100 new, social rent homes for Rugby.

“With support from Homes England and the [UK] government’s Getting Building Fund, we have prioritised building modern, energy-efficient homes for our tenants while ensuring the design of the development both complements the site’s Victorian surroundings and lays the foundations for a new, thriving community at Biart Place.”

In August this year, Willmott secured a project to build a new children’s home on the outskirts of Sleaford, Lincolnshire, UK.
