We delivered and facilitated the construction of over 750 new homes alongside quality public realm, open space and created thousands of local jobs.
The team delivered the ‘Hythe’ at Wirral Waters, a 30,000 sq ft Grade A sustainable office building which is already partly occupied. Also at Wirral Waters, we continued to progress building 30 modular homes as the first phase of new home delivery, with completion due in Autumn 2022.
