HG Construction is delighted to have completed its first project for Legal and General Affordable Homes – ‘The Moorings, Brentford Lock’ – at Commerce Road, London.
This is Legal & General Affordable Homes’ first land-led scheme. The development consists of 76 units in total – 67 shared ownership and 9 rented – over six levels, with one commercial unit. Piling, cranage, groundworks, frame and PUCs were all delivered using HG Construction’s internal capabilities, offering increased cost and programme certainty.
Adam Quinn, Managing Director, HG Construction commented: “It has been a collective team effort with our partners to keep this project on track and we are delighted to be at the handover stage. This is a great scheme which effectively fills a gap in the market, offering stylish, affordable homes to those who may struggle to get onto the property ladder. It has been a pleasure to work with Legal & General Affordable Homes on this scheme and we wish the new residents all the best in their new homes.”
Ben Denton, Chief Executive, Legal & General Affordable Homes said: “Legal & General Affordable Homes is delighted to have worked with HG Construction delivering 76 great quality Shared Ownership and affordable rented homes at The Moorings, Brentford. This 100% affordable scheme has made an important contribution to the regeneration of Brentford and provided much-needed affordable housing for the residents of Hounslow. There is an ongoing demand for high-quality and stable affordable housing across London, but there is a short supply available that Londoners so desperately need.
“This is another important milestone for Legal & General Affordable Homes proving the positive impact of institutional investment scaling up affordable housing delivery across the country.”
