Faithful+Gould appointed to Stockton modular housing scheme


Faithful+Gould has been chosen by Canvas Homes and Beyond Housing to help deliver Princeton Gardens, a 117-unit modular housing development in Stockton-on-Tees

Princeton Gardens is a mixed-tenure residential scheme made up of volumetric modular homes with an emphasis on placemaking, sustainability and green space.

Working alongside developer Canvas Homes, housing provider Beyond Housing and Homes England, Faithful+Gould will manage the scheme pre and post-contract as employer’s agent and oversee health and safety as principal designer.

‘Providing best-in-class MMC advice’

Adam Hartley, associate director at Faithful+Gould, said: “MMC offers a huge opportunity to deliver large developments like Princeton Gardens at a high quality but affordable cost.

“With pressures on the industry to increase productivity and social value, Faithful+Gould is committed to providing our clients best-in-class MMC advice so that they can use these methods to their, and their communities, advantage.”


Canvas’ modular homes use high quality materials with high thermal performance that exceed regulatory requirements. Through offsite construction, energy use, materials, waste, noise pollution and disruption are reduced, making this an environmentally friendly and efficient way to build homes.

To further reduce waste as part of this development, Canvas Homes will be using recycled steel piles from de-commissioned North Sea oil platforms and by pioneering pre-cast foundations which are also made offsite.

Frances Barlow, development manager at Beyond Housing, said: “Princeton Gardens is a fantastic development which will deliver much-needed, family-ready, eco-friendly homes in Stockton.

“We are pleased to be working in close partnership with Canvas Homes in delivering this flagship scheme for the North of England.”

Work will commence on site this summer, with the scheme expected to complete at the end of 2022.
