Wates Residential appoint HBS Group Southern to deliver the mechanical and electrical building services package for 200 new homes at Daedalus Village, a Homes England’s Flagship Project in Gosport, Hampshire.
In April 2019, Wates Residential selected HBS Group Southern as its delivery partner to design, supply and install all plumbing, heating and electrical services for 200 new homes currently under construction at Daedalus Village.
This large-scale regeneration scheme in Gosport is the first project in Homes England’s new national accelerated delivery programme.
Richard Manville, Construction Manager at Wates Residential said:
“I am delighted that HBS have signed up to work at Daedalus Village. This is our flagship site in the south and is the foundation of our expanding presence across the south west of England. Their continued commitment towards quality and customer service is second to none and the teams are really looking forward to the path ahead.”
In March 2020, Wates Residential took quick and effective action to implement measures in response to COVID-19 and enable safe working during lockdown to a controlled level of production. With the workforce reduced to 40% and single trades allowed per plot, our mechanical and electrical installation teams adapted to new ways of working to safely progress critical works for private and affordable plots to programme.
Daedalus Village comprises of a mix of tenures and sizes, with 120 private homes and 80 affordable homes managed by Abri housing association formerly Radian. When complete, the housing development will dramatically increase the number of new homes available in Gosport, helping to fulfil the local housing need.
