The site of a former office building in Bilston, Wolverhampton has been transformed into affordable homes for housing and social care provider GreenSquareAccord.
The £3m development off Millfields Road in Bilston has created 24 homes, a mix of one and two bedroom apartments, for affordable rent to local people. With a second phase of the development now underway, transforming a disused part of Springvale Sports and Social Club house into 57 affordable homes, comprising a mix of one and two bedroom apartments for affordable rent for local people.
The development is part of a wider £15.8m investment into the area from GreenSquareAccord to build 143 new affordable homes in Bilston.
The development has been designed using our closed Eco timber panel and integrated bathroom pods manufactured in our offsite facility in Aldridge and constructed onsite by GreenSquareAccord.
Customer Katrina Harper, who is living in a new home at Springvale said: “I love my new flat, its massive for a one bedroom home; I can’t wait to decorate it and make it my own. Living here is a great opportunity, it’s the best thing I’ve ever done.”
The second phase of GreenSquareAccord’s regeneration in the area will bring a further 57 new affordable homes situated next to the existing development on Millfields Road.
The new will also be built using our sustainable closed Eco timber frame system. Our premium timber frame solution is designed to maximize the performance of the building’s components and materials. This is achieved by using Fabric First principles, which focus on creating a highly insulated and airtight panel. The result is a high-quality, energy-efficient home that can be delivered on time and on budget. As a result the new residents of the apartments will save money on their energy bills.
Michael Nolan, Head of Development at GreenSquareAccord added “We are delighted to be bringing forward the next phase of development in the locality to provide high quality accommodation for local residents. With ongoing support from Homes England and the City of Wolverhampton we are looking forward to staring on site later this year”.
The Springvale development is conveniently located with a supermarket, pubs and all the amenities of Bilston high street less than half a mile away. GreenSquareAccord Springvale customers are well connected by public transport having just ten minutes to walk to get to The Crescent Metro Stop and with bus services running directly outside the development.
The scheme is due to receive £1.9m funding support from Homes England with work commencing on site from March, and to be completed by March 2025.
