Scheme includes 117 units
Faithful + Gould has been appointed by Canvas Homes and Beyond Housing to help develop a 117-unit modular housing scheme in Stockton-on-Tees.
When complete it will be the largest housing scheme built using entirely modern methods of construction (MMC) in the north of England.
Princeton Gardens – located on a large brownfield site between Durham University’s Queens Campus and the River Tees – is a mixed-tenure residential scheme made up of volumetric modular homes.
Working alongside developer Canvas Homes, housing provider Beyond Housing and Homes England, Faithful + Gould will manage the scheme pre- and post-contract as employer’s agent and oversee health and safety as principal designer.
Canvas’ modular homes use materials with high thermal performance.
To reduce waste as part of this development, Canvas will be using recycled steel piles from de-commissioned North Sea oil platforms with pre-cast foundations made off-site.
Work will start on site shortly, with the scheme expected to complete at the end of 2022.
