East Street, Braintree – Derelict brownfield site transformed
We were delighted to hand over the final homes at East Street, Braintree to CHP (https://www.chp.org.uk/) This development is their largest land-led scheme to date, transforming a formerly derelict brownfield site. The scheme provides 74 high quality affordable homes – 44 for affordable rent and 30 shared ownership.
A great initiative as part of the delivery of the site was the provision of 24 weeks onsite work experience spread between 7 students from Essex Youthbuild (https://www.essexyouthbuild.co.uk/) and a number of months work experience with our subcontractor Henrad Plumbing & Heating for a CHP apprentice.
Essex Youthbuild is a Chelmsford-based charity offering construction and employability skills training to young people aged 11-19 from all over Essex, our Apprenticeship Ambassadors worked closely with the charity to facilitate the implementation of this as well as visiting their workshop to speak with students.
