Fountain Crescent, Wotton-under-Edge

Aqua Construction is delighted to be starting work on a new development of 22 properties off Fountain Crescent in Wotton-under-Edge. Building the properties on behalf of Fortis Living, 12 houses and four flats for affordable rent will be constructed, while six houses will be offered for sale on a shared ownership basis.

Work is currently going on behind the scenes, liaising with Stroud District Council’s Planning Services to discharge the pre-commencement planning conditions and keeping neighbouring residents informed of the plans. Building work is planned to start on site in Autumn 2018.

The site has been vacant for a considerable time and local councillors have welcomed the development as a great use of empty land and an injection of desperately needed affordable housing for the town.

Design services are being provided by Quattro Design Architects and Shear Design, part of the team working with Aqua Construction that was recently nominated for four LABC awards. Building materials have been carefully chosen to suit the surrounding area, with local suppliers being used wherever possible.

Aqua Construction is thrilled to be involved in this exciting development and all parties are looking forward to a successful completion in early 2020.

Aqua Construction have just broken ground on a new Gloucester City Homes development. The will consist of  15 new affordable flats within the site at Edward Massie Gardens, Matson. Pictured above is Jason Wasley (Managing Director at Aqua Construction) and Ashley Green (Chief Executive at GCH).

We are currently in phase 2 of the social housing development program, to supply affordable housing to the Gloucester residents. We developed 24 affordable homes within the Matson area alone during phase one. Currently 2 of the phase 2 sites have been handed over with the final 3 due for completion this year.

We’re very pleased to have secured this development as it means we are able to supply the residents with the much needed affordable housing. It will consist of 12 two-bedroom flats and 3 one-bedroom flats, as well as new parking facilities. Previously the site was used as a car park/green area, because of this the area behind the flats will be landscaped.

Our team started development during late November/ early December 2017 on the Edward Massie Site and is due to be completed towards the end of 2018.
