Skanska, which is redeveloping the Princess Royal Barracks to create Mindenhurst, a new neighbourhood in Surrey, has welcomed Trivselhus to the scheme to deliver 28 new homes
Swedish housebuilder of low-density homes, Trivselhus, will submit a planning application to Surrey Heath Borough Council and could complete construction before the end of 2020.
The company becomes the third housebuilder to secure land at Mindenhurst.
Trivselhus will deliver low carbon, high-specification properties created using offsite manufacturing to provide fixed-cost homes and minimise construction programmes.
The Trivselhus site is located close to the centre of the Mindenhurst development, adjacent to the village green, new public house and the Garrison Church of St Barbara.
Mindenhurst is being delivered by Skanska on behalf of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), with each phase of new homes allocated to individual house builders.
As well as the low carbon homes, Skanska is also delivering key infrastructure in Mindenhurst, including new roads, community amenities and accessible green spaces.
Leisliane Garcia, development director at Skanska, said: “Adding Trivselhus to our developer portfolio at Mindenhurst is an exciting opportunity to demonstrate what can be achieved by taking a modern approach to construction methods.”
John Harris, managing director at Trivselhus, added: “These homes will be very energy-efficient, built using sustainable materials, to enhance the local area, while minimising the environmental impact.”
Mindenhurst will not only provide around 1,200 new homes by 2025, but it will also deliver 69 hectares of public green space, a new primary school, a pub, shops and business premises.
The redevelopment is part of the wider Project Wellesley, for which Skanska is the DIO’s development partner. This involves the construction of a new training facility at Worthy Down in Winchester that, in part, will replace the Princess Royal Barracks at Deepcut.
