HBS lands M&E services package at Dandara Fontwell Meadows

We are delighted to announce that housing developer Dandara (Southern) has appointed building services specialist HBS Group Southern (HBS) as the mechanical and electrical contractor for the first phase of its new Fontwell Meadows residential development in Fontwell, West Sussex.

HBS’ Mechanical and Electrical divisions will be providing Dandara with integrated plumbing and heating, electrical, and electric vehicle charging services package for 81 new houses and apartments.

Fontwell Meadows is the latest project to be awarded to HBS by Dandara’s Southampton office. It follows on from the M&E installations completed by our specialist delivery team at Windroos in Littlehampton that helped the 100% affordable development scoop the prestigious NHBC Pride in the Job Award in 2020.

James Hayter, Electrical Director at HBS Group Southern said: “We are pleased to continue our strong working relationship with Dandara and be chosen to support Fontwell Meadows. The combined package award is a testament to our integrated building services expertise and continued focus on providing a consistent standard of quality. We look forward to working closely with Dandara to deliver more high-quality housing in West Sussex, taking care of all mechanical, electrical and EV charging requirements.”

Helping to deliver high-quality, future-proof homes across West Sussex

Fontwell Meadows offers an exciting new collection of 1 & 2 bedroom apartments and 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes, finished to high-quality and energy-efficient standards. The development will benefit from scenic parkland space, play areas and allotments.

Of the 81 properties, there is a 30% affordable provision for shared ownership and rent to help boost housing supply in the local area.
