Shannon Road Housing Scheme
|G-Tech were happy to have been awarded the contract by Geo Houltons to be a part of a scheme consisting of 7 dwellings on the site of the old Viking pub on Shannon Road in Hull. Procured via the YORbuild 2 framework, the successful scheme was a finalist in the ‘best Social Housing’ category at the South Yorkshire & Humber LABC Building Excellence Awards.
The utilised site was that of the former Pub on a large established housing estate to the east of the City centre, which was purchased by Hull City Council using the local ward budget for redevelopment in response to the housing demand in the area. The site contributes to the Council’s Strategic Housing Plan diversifying the housing stock within the city by providing 2 & 3 bedroom accommodation with ground floor living and compliance with Lifetime Homes (Building Regulations Part M4 – Category 2).
The design concept was driven by a contextual analysis of the site and its surrounding area to create a contemporary residential community that compliments and enhances the sites location. Each new home has been designed to complement the existing tree lined road and with the contemporary take on a traditional house type, the seven new additions to Shannon Road offer an interesting and updated view from the main street.
