The £47m D’Urton Lane scheme in the Fulwood area of Preston will deliver a mix of shared ownership, affordable rent and private sale.
Subject to planning approval, the joint venture known as Laurus Partnership Homes will purchase the Homes England land and begin construction this year.
Willmott Dixon is committed to use Modern Methods of Construction to help increase the speed of construction and build out.
The private builder will adopt a sub-assemblies and components approach, including installation of pre-cast ground floors, first-floor cassettes, and installing pre-formed wiring looms.”
Anthony Dillon, managing director of Willmott Dixon in the North, said: “Trafford Housing Trust and Willmott Dixon recently delivered the Limelight development on Shrewsbury Street in Old Trafford and will be bringing this collaboration to Preston as partners in this LLP.”
