Saxon Fields is a mixed use development situated on Middletone Stoney Road, Bicester.
The development – being constructed by Bellway Homes (Northern Home Counties) – includes 141 units, comprising 40 Housing Association dwellings and 101 private properties, and combines a mix of two, three, four and five-bedroom houses.
The houses at Saxon Fields are being constructed from traditional methods of brick and block, with a large proportion of the properties including render. Windows on the dwellings are made from uPVC, whilst the roofing varies between clay and slate. Each of the properties also includes a front garden.
Whilst Bellway Homes (Northern Home Counties) is constructing the units, Colton Design is providing all architectural services on the scheme.
Work began on Saxon Fields in 2013 and to date 80 plots are currently under construction. Construction work is making fantastic progress on the site and with demand on the properties very high, the completion date is currently set for 2016, a year earlier than previously anticipated.
Speaking to Premier Construction about the development, Bellway Homes (Northern Home Counties) Senior Site Manager, Tony Sanders, commented:
“Sales are key to the development’s progress. The houses are selling very well, with great demand from customers. Saxon Fields is being built on a larger development, so effectively it feels as if we are building a new town. There will be schools, a community centre, a doctor’s surgery and shops all built on the outskirts of Bicester.”
Not only is the project making great progress from a construction standpoint, it is also making fantastic achievements within the industry, picking up two NHBC Awards for site manager Tony.
“The first award was an NHBC Health & Safety Award, which I recently picked up at a ceremony in Birmingham, and the second award was an NHBC Pride in the Job Award.
“I’ve worked with Bellway Homes for nine years, beginning as an Assistant Site Manager before making my way up to Senior Site Manager at the start of 2013.This is the first time that I’ve won any awards with NHBC and I am extremely pleased with this result. I’ve been to award ceremonies before, but to me the NHBC Awards is the construction industry equivalent of the Oscars. To get both a Pride in the Job and a Health & Safety Award is a great achievement and I hope it continues next year too.”
