£300m Greenwich modular development to create 750 affordable homes
A multi-million pound modular residential development in South East London is set to be built.
The Royal Borough of Greenwich has announced that local firm A&E Elkins has been awarded the contract on a £300m project to provide new build council homes using modular construction.
A&E Elkins has formed an alliance with Ideal Modular Homes and shedkm to deliver up to 750 affordable rent council homes across 60 sites.
Managing director at A&E Elkins, Ray Elkins, commented: “A&E Elkins is delighted to be part of the alliance to support the Royal Borough of Greenwich in their quest to provide high quality, affordable homes that exceed carbon zero standards and reduce fuel poverty for local communities.
A&E Elkins believes the council is setting a precedent that should be the standard for all new build homes.“
Royal Greenwich Cabinet member for housing, Cllr Anthony Okereke, added: “Employing modular techniques as part of our Greenwich Builds programme is allowing us to quickly deliver the high quality and sustainable council homes so badly needed in our borough.
“With plans for construction on 750 new homes to be underway by 2022, we’re excited to be at the forefront of delivering innovative zero-carbon council properties, making good on Royal Greenwich’s commitments to tackling both the housing crisis and climate change.”
