Up to 160 low energy homes are planned stretching from Trent Bridge to Colwick Park. The nine acre site has long waterside frontage with attractive views over the River Trent to Lady Bay and is just a ten minute cycle ride from the city centre. The area is the focus of major redevelopment proposals planned as a catalyst for change.
Trent Basin will provide homes with a mix of contemporary quality and low energy costs. The development will provide mainly 3 to 4 bed homes with a mix of contemporary quality and low energy costs.
Phase 1 (£26 million) of 45 homes has completed on budget and to programme. A prior enabling works contract to remediate the site and undertake repairs to the existing flood defences was completed on time and budget (circa £500,000). Phase 2 (£24 million) is due to commence shortly and will complete in 2018. The development will break the mould for edge of town waterside developments in English cities.
Focus are appointed as Project Manager, Employer’s Agent, Quality Monitor and Sustainability Advisor (HQI) and are part of a high-profile team assembled by Nottingham based developer, Blueprint (Igloo Regeneration).
