Housing development for school funding built with Forterra bricks

Housing development for school funding built with Forterra bricks

The Challenge
To fund necessary improvements to the existing school and the build of a new junior school, a school in Saffron Walden decided to commission a development of 76 new homes on part of its site. The site needed to include a range of housing from one-bedroom flats up to five-bedroom detached houses, as well as flats and small houses specifically designed for the over-55 market.

The Solution
Forterra’s Hampton Rural Blend Brick was used throughout the development, reflecting the neighbouring environment while enhancing the intrinsic qualities of the site.

The Benefits
The palette of materials within this development is traditional but the detailing is modern and confident. The development won a RIBA National Award in 2016.
