Construction of housebuilder’s’ £4.4m Gloucestershire office underway

Work has begun on a housebuilder’s new £4.4m regional office in Gloucestershire.

Midlands-based Deeley Construction has started work on Bloor Homes’ new purpose-built 18,000 sq ft base in Tewkesbury.

Bloor Homes said it had “outgrown” its base at Furrowfield Park, which has been its home for the past 14 years, and would replace it with a two-storey development being built to BREEAM ‘Very Good’ status. The project is targeted for completion in October 2022.

The company, whose head office is in Derbyshire, said its new premises would help it to grow its workforce in the area over the next five years, and provide a regional staff training centre.

Steve Roberts, regional managing director at Bloor Homes, said: “It’s important to us that we continue to contribute to the local economy and its economic wellbeing – and building our new regional office in the Tewkesbury Borough allows us to do just that.

“Many of our office-based staff are local residents and through our other activities in the area we indirectly support a large number of jobs in the local construction sector and associated supply chain.”

Plans for the new site include a belt of trees and a native species hedgerow being planted on the southern side of the development, with 66 car-parking spaces, with some offering EV charging points.

Steve Turner, construction director at Deeley Construction, added: “We are pleased to have started work on-site for this sustainable new office for one of the UK’s largest housebuilders.

“We are using our internal expertise and external energy consultants to deliver this as a low-carbon facility, which will support both Deeley Group and Bloor Homes in reaching net zero carbon targets.”

Bloor Homes is one of the largest privately-owned house building groups in the UK and builds more than 3,000 homes each year.
