Winvic has been appointed to deliver phase one of infrastructure works at Fairham, a new £800 million neighbourhood for Nottingham which is being delivered by Clowes Developments in partnership with Homes England.
Winvic will be installing a site compound before conducting a wide range of enabling and ground works from September 2020 onwards to deliver highway, drainage, and utility infrastructure. The enabling works will be focused on Nottingham Road in the first instance, to allow wider construction to progress through the latter part of this year and into 2021.
The works will launch the first phase of the £100 million infrastructure investment for the 600-acre Fairham development, which gained planning permissions at the start of 2018. There will be up to 3,000 new homes, 1 million sq ft of commercial space along with a neighbourhood centre, as well as community, health and educational facilities, with the first housing sites coming forward during 2021.
Fairham has been designed around a highly sustainable, ultra-connected location set amid the green landscape of south Nottinghamshire. With all amenities co-located alongside one another, it will be one of the most accessible and sustainable communities in the country.
Derbyshire-based Clowes Developments is the company overseeing Fairham in conjunction with Homes England, the government’s housing accelerator.
Land and Planning Director with Clowes Developments Robert Hepwood said: “We have a long track record of working with Winvic on delivering complex and large scale schemes across the country. Welcoming them onto the Fairham site is an important first step towards bringing the new homes, infrastructure and employment opportunities of the neighbourhood to fruition.
“Fairham is a crucial development for the East Midlands and it will demonstrate how vital the local economy is after the events of earlier this year. Over the coming twelve months we will be progressing the site at pace by working closely with our partners and the public will soon see some big changes to the landscape as we move forward.”
Rob Cook, Winvic’s Civils & Infrastructure Director, said: “It’s great to be working on such a flagship project and we’re delighted that Clowes Developments and Homes England recognised that we would make the perfect partner to deliver the vast groundworks, highways and utility installation phase.
“Our experience on a number of significant gateway and mixed use sites like Fairham – as well as infrastructure and preparatory works across all construction sectors – means we are well placed to deliver this vital first part of the project and exceed expectations. We can’t wait to start bringing Fairham to life, laying the foundations for the homes, community facilities and employment opportunities to come.”
