The Gables

A £7million development of 34 new homes on the outskirts of Milton Keynes is one of the latest projects by Mears New Homes for client Lea Valley Homes, a subsidiary of Aldwyck Housing Group.

Mears New Homes is the new-build housing division of Mears Group, and has built a strong portfolio of work, across the south of England and are now expanding across the country. We blend contemporary design and sustainable materials to build unique and attractive homes for rent and sale. And combined with our extensive experience in the repairs and maintenance sector, we have the insight to ensure that the homes we build are high quality, affordable and energy efficient.

The Gables is an exclusive development of mixed tenure scheme, with houses for sale, rent and shared ownership, and is due for completion in 2018. Once appointed to the site in Milton Keynes, we worked with the Lea Valley team to ‘value engineer’ the scheme design, including the use of an innovative foundation system to reduce the cost in the ground, as well as a timber frame system to reduce the construction period. Across this design engineering process, we were able to make savings of £625,000 for the client.
