City West Housing Trust has selected Lovell to build a £4.4m development of 50 affordable homes in Little Hulton, Salford.
Work is under way on the Kenyon Gateway scheme, which is designed by John McCall Architects and supported by funding from the Homes & Communities Agency. The new housing is designed to meet Level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
Lovell was awarded the contract following a competitive tendering process through City West Housing Trust’s development framework. It is the contractor’s first job for this client.
“Kenyon Gateway will create modern, high-quality affordable homes for rent alongside properties which will enable local people to take their first step on to the housing ladder through City West’s low-cost home ownership scheme,” said Lovell regional director Nigel Yates.
