HBS provided a full M&E package for First Wessex’s regeneration project at the former Foyer Building in Portsmouth. The electrical division delivered domestic electrical services, helping to complete the full refurbishment and conversion of 29 affordable flats to a high standard.

In 2013, First Wessex Homes started the regeneration of the Foyer building in Portsmouth. HBS delivered a full electrical and mechanical installation, helping the client convert and refurbish the building to its former glory. The refurbished Aggie Weston House now offers 29 affordable flats for rent and shared ownership. Furthermore, it now provides suitable accommodation for disadvantaged young people as part of a tailored programme provided by First Wessex.
