Deeley Construction has hit a high point on a scheme in Stratford-upon-Avon that is being created on behalf of Orbit.
Fordham House is a new development of 82 private rent apartments on the corner of Birmingham Road and Clopton Road, with initial preference to key workers in the town.
The development is a partnership between Stratford Town Trust, Orbit, ABD Developments and Robothams Architects. Deeley Construction is the design and build contractor.
A topping out ceremony was held at the development, which is on the site of a vacant office building that was demolished to allow work to proceed, to mark the highest point in the build being reached.
Justin Williams, of Stratford Town Trust, and Adam Cooper, of Orbit, joined Peter Deeley and site manager Richard Pepper on the roof of the scheme before other visitors. Other guests were shown around the one and two-bed apartments which are undergoing the ‘first fix’ of electrical and mechanical services.
Peter Deeley said: “We are delighted with the way work is progressing and the topping out ceremony marks an important milestone in the build.
“Richard and the team are doing a great job, and Justin and Adam were both pleased with the way the development is coming along.”
Nearly 250,000 bricks and blocks have been used to complete the scheme. Local school pupil Isabella, aged six, guessed the correct amount in a competition prior to Christmas winning an iPad for her and family.
