Barratt Homes appoints HBS as their preferred M&E delivery partner for Saxon Corner

We’re pleased to announce that HBS Group Southern has secured the plumbing, heating and electrical services contract for Saxon Corner, a new development from Barratt David Wilson Homes (Southampton). The large-scale scheme situated in Emsworth will feature one, two, three and four-bedroom properties. Consisting of 147 new homes in total, there will be a 30% allocation for affordable housing.

This is the first combined M&E contract to be awarded to any contractor by the housebuilder’s Southampton region. So we are extremely delighted that our multi-disciplinary expertise and capabilities have been recognised. It further demonstrates how HBS Group Southern is fast becoming the trusted mechanical and electrical contractor of choice for the UK’s leading housebuilders across the South.

Jon Green, Managing Director at Barratt David Wilson Homes (Southampton) said:

Plans for this development are moving forward and we are really pleased to have HBS Group Southern on board. The company has a proven track record and I am confident that working together means we can create beautiful, high quality homes for buyers in Emsworth and the surrounding area.” 

Saxon Corner is the latest residential housing project awarded to HBS by the 5 Star housebuilder in recent months. It follows contracts secured at the Quarter Jack Park and Canford Paddock schemes in Dorset and Madgwick Park in Chichester.
