Laindon centre is a redevelopment of a run down 1960’s shopping centre close to Basildon in Essex for Swan Housing. The scheme involves the creation of 88 new build CLT freehold houses, 136 residential flats split over five blocks and the creation of a new high street with retail units. The scheme has been consulted heavily with the local community due to the political nature of the site following a number of failed plans in the past. HTS have been continually adding value to the project by carrying a detailed cut and fill study for the site, to retain the excavated material on site, this has resulted in a saving to the project of over £5M to date.
