We’re delighted to announce that David Wilson Homes (Southampton) has appointed building services specialist HBS Group Southern (HBS) as the mechanical and electrical contractor for its new large-scale Harbour Place development in Bedhampton, Havant.

HBS’ Mechanical and Electrical integrated divisions will be providing a combined plumbing and heating, electrical and EV charging package for 115 properties at the David Wilson branded parcel. It forms part of the wider development at Harbour Place, with 205 properties currently under construction for the Barratt Homes brand.

The brand-new collection of David Wilson Homes at Harbour Place will feature a mix of two, three and four-bedroom properties, located between Bedhampton and Drayton. All will be constructed to a high-quality and energy-efficient standard. Surrounded by green open space with the coastline on your doorstep. A 20% provision for affordable housing split across affordable rent and shared ownership is to be managed by VIVID.

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

“We are pleased to partner with HBS on this prestige site, Harbour Place set in an ideal location close to countryside and coast and I am sure demand for the homes here will be high. Also providing over 30 acres of green space for the whole community to enjoy. It is a great pleasure to be able to continue our long-standing relationship with HBS and the great service they provide as we create a collection of beautiful homes in Havant.”

The first-choice M&E contractor for David Wilson Homes

Harbour Place is the latest site to be awarded to HBS by the 5 Star housebuilder’s Southampton office. It follows on from successful building services contracts secured on several sites in recent years. These include Quarter Jack Park, Canford Paddock and the NHBC Pride in the Job winning Saxon Corner, Madgwick Park and New Quarter.

Across these live projects, HBS continue to produce industry-leading workmanship to support the seamless construction of more high-quality and sustainable Barratt David Wilson Homes across the South.

Paul Bailey, Operations Director at HBS Mechanica commented:

“We as a team are delighted to have secured this project and continue our close 20-year partnership with Barratt David Wilson Southampton. They are a highly valued client and as this is the second time HBS has been awarded the combined M&E package, it shows the housebuilder’s trust in our multi-disciplined expertise and commitment to quality control and service excellence. We look forward to supporting Gary Bickel and his management team at Harbour Place to produce much-needed, energy-efficient new homes of the highest quality.”
