Midlands & East Anglia NHBC Awards

Completing Heath Meadows

Heath Meadows, the new build housing estate in Bedfordshire, is coming close to completion.

Heath Meadows is a mixed development comprising a mix of flats and Housing Association properties. The development got underway four years ago and construction is now drawing to an end, with an end date scheduled for late September/early October.

During the past four years the project has continued without any major challenges, however during the economic downturn the construction team was forced to down tools temporarily.

Some of the houses on the development, in specific the three-storey houses, include beautiful patio doors which give a view of nearby big open spaces. Each house has its own individual front and back garden, with a mixture of drives, integral garages and car ports, which is essential for residents who drive.

The new homes in Leighton Buzzard benefit from the traditional life the market town offers. Situated close to Chiltern Hills, where there is a market square, with a vast amount of high street shops and local boutiques.

The development is also situated within a short distance of schools, a play park, Stockgrove County Park, the M1 and A5 motorways. A railway grants access into the local area and beyond.

The main contractor of Heath Meadows is Taylor Wimpey North Thames.  The development has received the NHBC Award during each of the 4 years that work has taken place, with the most recent award given to site manager Jason Dear who previously served on the project as an assistant site manager.

Jason Dear, who has been on the site from the very beginning, commented on the importance of achieving the award this year.

Jason said:

“It was very important for me and for Taylor Wimpey North Thames as a whole to win this NHBC Award. We have set ourselves a very high standard of work on this site and I especially wanted to keep that up after being a part of the work for the past three years as assistant site manager.

“From the moment I became the site manager I was determined we would win this award for a fourth time and that’s exactly what we have done.”
