Our social housing project on the Trench Road, Derry/Londonderry provides 78 social houses for Apex Housing Association.
Building works commenced at St.Brecan’s Park on 31st March 2017 and EHA was delighted to handover Phases One & Two in October 2018. Phase Three was handed over in December 2018, with 29 social homes occupied by local families just in time for Christmas. A further 14 homes were handed over on the 6th of February 2019 from Phase Four. The remaining houses were handed over from Phases Five & Six at the end of May 2019, completing the project.
The team at Trench Road hit the headlines in January 2019 by recycling 21,144 tonnes of waste material on site in just 19 months. This was published as ‘Best Practice’ with the UK-wide Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS).
EHA prioritise the CCS Code of Considerate Practice. We believe with each project it is essential to protect and enhance the environment, in particular identifying, managing and promoting environmental issues. At every opportunity, we seek sustainable solutions and minimise waste and resources used.
We are delighted the scheme has been shortlisted in the 2019 Construction Excellence Awards, which will be announced in October.
