Construction kicks-off at Blaby social housing project

Construction is currently underway for a social housing initiative located in Blaby, Leicestershire.

This project aims to offer housing options for individuals with mental health requirements.

The project is a team effort involving several organisations, including Pelham, Norton Housing and Support, Modus Partnerships, and IMA Architects.

Once finalised, the development will feature 15 one-bedroom self-contained apartments.

Based in Leicestershire, IMA Architects has partnered with Modus Partnerships to create the architectural design, which includes two-story apartment buildings, a central courtyard, parking facilities, and other necessary infrastructure.

This project has received substantial backing and partial funding from Blaby District Council and Homes England and is expected to be completed by spring 2024.

Fran Cropper, development and new business manager at Pelham said: “We are delighted to be working with our partner Norton Housing and Support as a member of the Blue Skies Consortium to deliver bespoke mental health housing to Blaby. We recognise the difficulty of delivering technically demanding schemes such as this and make it our mission to deliver homes on time, within budget and to the highest standards. We want to extend our gratitude to Blaby District Council and Homes England for their unwavering support for this vitally important scheme.”
