Project - Ashington Gardens, Peacehaven - Site B
Sector - Residential
Technology - Offsite
Company - Boutique Modern
In 2018 Boutique Modern in partnership with OSM Construction won a tender to design, manufacture and install 6 new bungalows to 2 non-strategic garage sites in Peacehaven, East Sussex for use as retiree social housing for Lewes District Council.
Of the 2 sites to be developed, Site B proved to be by far the most challenging - located on a raised site accessible only by pedestrian pathways it proved impossible for traditional construction, but was overcome by innovative delivery of volumetric modular construction.
The work Boutique Modern is doing with Lewes District Council and Lewes Building Control is attracting attention on a National scale by industry leaders and commentators alike. Local Authorities utilising a local modular buildings manufacturer to supply local social housing and in turn supporting local jobs, skills training, local economy and an active policy towards sustainability sets Ashington Gardens apart as a fantastic solution to the UK housing shortage. The success of this project has led to a further project manufacturing 13 flats for social housing to be placed in Newhaven, again for Lewes District Council. This has led to the hiring of 7 new employees full time and secured 3 skills apprenticeships for previously unskilled workers.
