Mimosa Court, Derry,
Thanks to Premier Construction for featuring our recent social housing scheme in Derry; Mimosa Court.
Constructed for Arbour Housing formerly South Ulster Housing association, the new homes began hand over in August 2021, 6 months ahead of schedule. This was achieved despite many COVID 19 restrictions, labour shortages and highly limited supply chain availability due to Brexit.
The scheme is located off the Strabane Old Road on the Waterside area of Derry. Mimosa Court consists of 9 one bedroom and 18 two-bedroom apartments, along with associated works and landscaping.
This accomplishment was despite several exceptional issues through the build. The project was initially delayed due to the immediate COIVD 19 lock down. When the team were able to continue, detailed site management was implemented to ensure all government regulations were adhered to.
James Wright – Head of Development Arbour/South Ulster Housing said;
“Arbour Housing are extremely grateful to the hard work of EHA Group who have completed 27 homes for our new Tenants, completed six months ahead of schedule.
EHA worked extremely well in partnership with us, providing great communication and management of a scheme during difficult times with many potential setbacks affecting the industry as a whole.
Despite this the team were determined to hand over as soon as viable and 27 families are very happily housed in excellent lifetime homes. We have received great feedback from new tenants and neighbours, happy to have excellent new homes for the community.”
