Building homes, communities and futures since 1987

Case Study: Sea Road, Southampton

Our project to develop land close to the waterfront in Southampton’s Itchen area became an award-winning scheme for Highwood when it was presented with the Best Stand Alone Small Development title at the Affordable Home Ownership Awards recently.

The development of 10 townhouses and 12 apartments was constructed on behalf of the Swaythling Housing Association who were pleased to provide the following testimonial in praise of our achievements on the project.

“In developing the homes, Swaythling Housing Society worked in partnership with Highwood Construction, Southampton City Council and the Housing Corporation to help transform the site, which was previously wasteland, into twelve one and two-bedroom flats for shared ownership and 10 three and four-bedroom houses for general needs rent.

The site had significant abnormal costs and a very steep bank making it very difficult to work on. Highwood provided excellent technical knowledge to overcome all the issues associated with the site and excellent communication throughout the whole build, leading to a very high standard of workmanship and top-end finish. The Swaythling Housing Society looks forward to working with Highwood again on future projects”.
