Modular housing company to assemble its largest-ever scheme in East Mids
Modular housing company ilke Homes is set to build its largest-ever scheme in the East Midlands.
The firm has secured a 14.6-acre site on Dysart Road in Grantham which will be transformed into 227 homes. Enabling works have already been undertaken by the former landowner, Anderson Group.
ilke Homes worked the Anderson Group and agent CBRE to agree the deal which will help unlock the site and deliver family housing in Grantham.
The deal with Anderson Group follows recent news that ilke Homes has been selected as a developer by Nottinghamshire County Council to regenerate a brownfield site in Arnold, Nottingham which will see the delivery of 140 factory-built homes.
All of the homes will be manufactured offsite at ilke Homes’ 250,000 sq ft factory in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, before being delivered to Dysart Road.
Tom Heathcote, executive director of development at ilke Homes, said: “We’re delighted to have secured a deal with the Anderson Group and to have worked on our first deal with CBRE.
“As a result of this deal, we will be unlocking a site which benefits from detailed planning consent. Thanks to our modular housing technology, we will be able to deliver 227 much-needed sustainable homes for the local community in just over two years.”
Will Blacker, associate director at CBRE, said: “It has been great to work with the team at ilke homes who are bringing forward much needed housing to the region in a time where there is a shortage of immediate and deliverable land. I am excited at the prospect of this site coming forward so quickly through the use of modular off-site construction methods. This site provides a great opportunity to create a sizeable, well-connected community. .”
Andrew Jay, group managing director at Anderson Group, said: ““Anderson Group are at the forefront of Innovation in the UK construction sector, so we look forward to seeing ilke
“Homes deliver their own innovative new homes at Dysart Road, and we feel sure there will be further opportunities for collaboration in the future”.
