Thakeham’s Partnerships team identified the site and presented it to Optivo. We then assisted them in securing the land and undertook the build as part of a package deal. This site had its challenges; the topography, building adjacent to a primary school, as well as having to re-locate some plots due to challenges with the sites gradient.
The scheme has delivered 40 plots of affordable housing in this stunning rural Sussex village. 100% of the scheme was completed early and within budget.
“It has been a pleasure working with Thakeham on our scheme at Steelands together. They kept us up to date with the programme & ensured it was delivered on time. We also regularly discussed the budget again ensuring this was kept on track.
The final product is of outstanding quality. We would certainly be wanting to develop further schemes with Thakeham, they are a great contractor who deliver on their promises.” – Tim Harris, Development Manager at Optivo
“It’s not often our team fail to find any small issues at handover, but it’s happened at Ticehurst. The whole Thakeham team have really impressed me but it’s clear that Tomasz really wants to produce the best product and he works hard leading and motivating the site operatives to achieve his goal. If only every site manager was like Tomasz!” – Tim Harris, Development Manager at Optivo
