Lovell wins £4m housing job

Lovell has won a contract to build a ВЈ4.23m housing development for Midland Heart in Winson Green, Birmingham.

The development on Bacchus Road will consist of 18 two-bedroom apartments and 23 two-, three- and four-bedroom houses.

The award follows Lovell's appointment to the Midland Heart new-build contractor framework for housing projects valued between ВЈ2m and ВЈ10m earlier this year.

Midland Heart acquired the former Birmingham City Council depot site in April 2006. The 41–home development will be built to Level Three of the Code of Sustainable Homes.

David Gough, Lovell commercial manager in the Midlands, commented: “We’re excited to be appointed our first scheme working with Midland Heart as a member of the group’s contractor framework.

“We look forward to delivering this energy-efficient new housing which will help address the need for new high-quality affordable housing in Birmingham.”
