Sovini Construction announce the completion of its new mixed tenure housing scheme, Kings Park, situated in Seaforth, Merseyside to One Vision Housing.

Both companies form part of The Sovini Group. Sovini Construction were approached by One Vision Housing to construct 21 units, consisting of 16 two and three-bedroom homes and 5 two-bedroom bungalows designed based on accessibility at the centre for residents aged 55 and over in the Sefton area.

Sovini Construction commissioned a modern development that was representative of the areas varying socio-economic demographics, whilst respecting the history of the site.

To commemorate the historic nature of the developments, Sovini Construction suitably named the site – Kings Park as it is situated on a former 19th century Army Barracks for the Kings Cavalry Regiment.

The project from start to completion took a total of 56 weeks, and all work undertaken was built with quality control measures in mind, and in conjunction with up to date LABC and Building Regulations.

As part of the project brief, key specifications were requested with One Vision Housings customers in mind. Detailed header feature panels to front elevations were constructed to add a luxe design to the properties, alongside the installation of double drives.  In the planning stages of the development with BYA Architects and structural Engineers, Sutcliffe, space had been allocated within each plot for the fixture of a bird box, following the local area conservation report stipulating the presence of local wildlife. With a vision to create thriving and inclusive communities, a communal playground has been erected on the development site, boasting a vast public open space for tenants to enjoy.

Sovini Construction are committed to reducing their carbon footprint through the fast adaption of new technologies, the recasting of supply chain and procurement models. Adhering to The Sovini Groups Net Zero Carbon commitment, each stage of the constriction process was planned with our pledge in mind. Each plot holds an electric car charging point, and benefits from A+ efficiency boilers used in each property, alongside being fully insulated using 75mm ridged board cavity insulation, 100mm party wall insulation and 450mm loft insulation.

Sovini Trade Supplies who are also a member of The Sovini Group were able to supply trades materials locally via electric vehicles, this reducing our carbon footprint from outsourcing.

For this project, Multiple Sovini Construction and Sovini Property Services apprentices involved in the scheme, enabling them to gain vital work experience and evidence to support their course criteria. We go above and beyond, providing each apprentice with a bespoke learning programme to ensure they receive the maximum training and qualifications. The Kings Park development construction provided apprentices with a hands-on understanding of their trade, and the opportunity to demonstrate these practical skills on site.

Furthermore, Sovini Construction and One Vision Housing demonstrated partnership working with the project being delivered in line with what was in the agreed scope, within agreed timescales and to budget.
