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”.
