WCN Editorial Team 14 Apr 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

UK-based construction firm Hill has begun construction on a housing project worth about £70m for army families at Tidworth in Wiltshire.

Hill will deliver the project working on behalf of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation, an operating arm of the UK’s Ministry of Defence.

The development will include 322 new three- and four-bedroom homes for service personnel and their families based at barracks on and around Salisbury Plain.

The housing units will incorporate red bricks and traditional roof styles that feature in surrounding villages. The project will also feature five open green spaces.

The project is set to be completed in spring 2018.

Hill deputy chief executive Kieran Larkin said: “We are delighted to be partnering with the Ministry of Defence in what will be our largest single contract to date.

“This is not only a completely new sector for us at Hill, but it’s also our first project in Wiltshire, and is a fantastic opportunity to create homes for service personnel.”
