Construction of three new terraced homes for Aspire Housing

As part of a £300,000 project in partnership with Aspire Housing group, we completed work on three brand new two-bedroom homes in Staffordshire.

The Novus team was contracted to construct the three terrace homes on Albert Street in Bignall End in a 26-week period.

The work was multi-trade, and we completed every aspect of the project, from laying foundations to constructing the homes then completing electrical, plumbing and roofing work along with plastering, kitchen and bathroom installations and painting and decorating.

The homes were completed in the agreed timescale and to the highest standard, with two being rented to the social landlord’s residents and one being sold under a shared ownership arrangement.

We followed the Code for Sustainable Homes throughout construction, implementing robust waste management strategies and installing low energy lighting, insulation and other energy-efficient products to ensure sustainability.

Each home adhered to the Secured by Design initiative, while they were also designed so they are easily adapted for people with disabilities. Light fittings are all at a lower height, ramps have been installed and stairlifts can be fitted with ease if necessary.

Our team had a small space to complete the work within, which proved challenging, however, the team overcame this by implementing efficient building methods and robust logistical strategies which included constructing the homes in a specific sequence.

Novus has worked effectively in partnership with the Aspire Group to achieve a high quality affordable housing product on a challenging small site working around existing homes. These new homes will provide welcome affordable housing for rent and to buy in a rural part of Newcastle-under- Lyme, helping to meet local need.
