Bringing a redundant site back to life, creating two new jobs, and building six ‘sympathetically-designed’ council houses in the borough of Great Yarmouth – all results of a new strong partnership between Wellington and the Borough Council’s development company Equinox.
Built on the site of a former housing depot, the new homes featured rather more design flair than might be expected in affordable housing, with full-height windows and decorative features such as brightly-coloured window pods.
As part of the construction contract, Wellington gave a work placement on the site to a local man who had been unemployed for a long period; this resulted in a permanent job with the company. In addition, a new brick-laying apprenticeship was created, which was taken up by one of Wellington’s existing labourers, giving him a route into a trade and a bright future in the industry.
