The John Coxall Court: brand new homes for the over-55s in Letchworth

Thursday April 15 2021

We’ve completed our most recent surfacing project with Hill Partnerships in Letchworth, the world’s first Garden City. The John Coxall Court site previously housed a two-storey 1970s sheltered housing block, demolished in 2017 to make way for new high-quality apartments for the over-55s.

The new scheme is the Howard Cottage Housing Association’s largest project for over 40 years. The complex almost doubles the number of homes available on the site, offering 71 state-of-the-art two-bedroom apartments along with communal facilities, which include lounge and living areas, a hair salon and a buggy store.

Our Surfacing and Coatings division undertook works on the external elements of the site; we were tasked with applying resin bound gravel to the pathways. In total, we’ve now laid down a whopping 480m2 of surface, consisting of both ‘buff’ and grey colour blends.

Winter weather conditions gave us some minor headaches causing small delays, but the job was completed in February. As always we’re glad to see the fruits of our labour, improving the environments and the quality of life of people living in the UK.
