Building in Essex is experiencing a boost, as plans for much needed homes begin to materialise, allowing affordable housing and regeneration. The centre of Chelmsford will be the lucky recipient of a redevelopment that will see the delivery of 219 mixed tenure dwellings. This project is the first phase of the Chelmsford scheme that will provide 80 affordable homes along with 74 private units, and 65 extra care units.
Other work related to this project is in the mix, including alterations to the existing highway as well as the construction of new roads. The local community centre will be refurbished, there will be provision of an energy centre, and demolition or structural alterations to other buildings are also in the pipeline. Provision of retail and commercial space plus landscaping will see a functional yet attractive improvement to the area. The new buildings will feature sustainable design and technology in order to deliver an eco friendly and cost effective solution.
Building activity has also been ongoing in the nearby seaside town of Southend, in the form of the refurbishment of the Civic Centre, The 13 storey council building, opened in 1967, became unfit for purpose in the modern day, and was given a 21st century makeover. This decision also avoided the costly maintenance work which would have been required. Options considered included patching up repairs, total rebuild with relocation or refurbishment. The latter choice was deemed to be the most favourable approach not only to save money but to provide a user friendly environment for relocated centre staff and residents.
Construction in the current climate is often about reviewing the way things are done in order to achieve a more efficient process, and one which keeps costs to a minimum.
