Balfour Beatty has announced two affordable housing contracts totaling £4.6 million in Wisbech for Circle Housing, part of the Roddon Housing association.

The design and build developments consist of 25 new houses and 20 flats across two sites which will form part of an overall £32.4 million investment in the Fenland area by Circle Housing Roddon.

These latest awards follow last month’s successful completion of the £4.2 million ‘Treeway’ development in Chatteris for the same customer. Best practice developed on that scheme including daily stakeholder engagement, will also be delivered on the Wisbech schemes.

Christopher Smith, Regional Operations Director at Circle Housing said: “We are pleased to be working in partnership with Balfour Beatty on our two new schemes. We were delighted with the levels of proactive customer and community engagement demonstrated at Chatteris and look forward to working together with the team on these schemes.”

Dean Burgess, Balfour Beatty Managing Director for East Anglia, said: “We are happy to be working once again for Circle Housing Roddon in delivering these high quality affordable homes.”

This latest appointment follows Balfour Beatty’s success in securing the £2.7 million Acacia Avenue housing project in Wisbech, which started on site this summer.
