Long-term Rund client, Abri, is celebrating a recent award win for its Daedalus Village scheme as Rund continues providing Employer’s Agent and Clerk of Works services on the project.
Daedalus Village, located in Gosport, was awarded a Silver accolade for Best Starter Home Scheme in the What House? Awards 2020. The awards recognise developments which offer variety, quality, and value for money for first-time buyers getting onto the property ladder.
The scheme, which is being delivered by Abri and Wates Residential, involves the redevelopment of a former military base and includes 200 new homes. The scheme forms part of a larger regeneration scheme for the southern edge of Solent Airport. Rund is working with Abri to deliver 80 of the units, comprising one and two bedroom shared ownership apartments and houses.
Nigel Stephens, Senior Surveyor at Rund commented: “We’re pleased to be involved in this exceptional project with Abri and Wates Residential. Its award win is testament to the level of care and detail that has gone into the development, with each home finished to a high specification and complemented by the surrounding Hampshire countryside. It’s been a pleasure working with Abri and Wates Residential, who have provided excellent communication and efficient ways of working to allow us to collectively deliver these high-quality homes.”
Rund has been involved in the scheme since its pre-contract stages, providing detailed contract administration as part of our Employer’s Agent services. Our Clerk of Works team has been closely monitoring all affordable housing-related works on site, ensuring only the highest quality standards are achieved.
Each home at Daedalus Village is thoughtfully designed to encompass the location’s rich history. In addition, the area offers panoramic views across The Solent, with a nearby beach, country parks and high street on its doorstep.
James Hartley, Project Manager at Abri added: “Our ethos centres around delivering safe, secure and affordable homes which make people happy. Daedalus Village is perfectly aligned with our values and offers a stunning, high-quality environment anyone would be proud to call home. We’re delighted to have won a Silver award in the What House? Awards and look forward to successfully completing the project after working seamlessly with Wates Residential and Rund.”
