Henley Construct signs deal with PA Housing to deliver 60 MMC affordable homes in Croydon

Henley Construct has exchanged contracts to deliver 60 affordable homes for PA Housing on the site of a former office building in Croydon.

It is situated at the corner of Surrey Street and Matthews Yard; the entrance to a weekly street market, which will be able to remain operational during construction.

The scheme will be delivered using MMC and materials in line with the historic context of the conservation area and the local street scene.

Aaron Usmani, construction director at Henley Construct, said: “We look forward to working on this site in Croydon, bringing much needed affordable housing to the area. 

“While lockdown is still in process, we will be working with strict social distancing in place on this site to get the work underway — our employees’ health is paramount.

“Henley Construct has a first-class track record in delivering projects of this nature. 

“Quality and detail are critically important to us regardless of tenure — people deserve high quality housing regardless of whether they are renting or buying.”

James Lambert, development consultant for PA Housing, added: “This development sits in a core town centre location where affordable housing is needed. 

“We look forward to working with Henley on the project and are delighted that work will start soon in order to fulfil the affordability need in the area, with further schemes in the pipeline.”
