Work gets underway on £8M local housing scheme

Coulson has begun work on site on the £8 million local co-housing development known as Marmalade Lane, which is located just up the road From our head quarters at Orchard Park.

The project comprises of the development of 42 stylish Swedish-made homes ranging from one bedroom flats to four bedroom family homes with shared facilities designed to “foster community spirit and sustainable living”.

In addition to private homes, residents will have the use of extensive shared gardens and a ‘common house’, with a children’s play room, guest bedrooms, laundry facilities and a large hall and kitchen for shared meals and parties.

The year-long building programme was kicked off when members of K1 Cohousing put the first spade in the ground, marking the culmination of seven years of work to realise Cambridge’s first cohousing community.

Dave Teeboon, Site Manager for Coulson Building Group, said:

 

“It’s an unusual privilege to meet the residents of a housing development before you’ve built it.

With our HQ less than a mile away, it’s great to be working and employing local people on a local

project.”

The scheme is being developed by TOWN and Trivselhus using TOWN’s Custom Build approach and is due for completion summer 2018.
