The developers Southern Counties office has recently awarded HBS’s Mechanical and New Energies divisions contracts to design, supply, install and commission a full range of plumbing, heating and solar PV services to support a new major development of 169 new homes being constructed at the former Sandyfields Nurseries sites in Colden Common, Winchester.
Kings Gate, as it will be known, will feature 2, 3, and 4 bedroom houses and apartments, and will include 40% affordable housing for social rent and shared ownership.
