Current status / Background
Islington’s vision for housing as laid down in the Housing Strategy 2014-2019 is to make sure everyone in Islington has a place to live that is affordable, decent and secure. Secure and affordable housing is recognised as an enabler. Housing has an important role in shaping healthy places, preventing ill health, supporting residents into work and tackling child poverty.
Since 2010 Islington has delivered over 1800 new affordable homes. Over the next 4 years Islington aims to build another 2 000 homes in the borough. 1 500 of these will be for social rent, including 500 new council homes.
This contract is for the construction of 27 new council apartments in 2 blocks, designed and built to the highest energy standards, ensuring these homes are cheaper to run. The floor plans will comply with Lifetime home standards ensuring that residents will be able to stay within their homes, irrespective, in the main, of any changes to their mobility.
The contract is for the construction of 2 x 5 storey buildings to provide 10 self-contained flats in Block 1 and 17 supported living units (C2 use) in Block 2. This block will include communal rooms, staff meeting/sleepover facilities and reception.
