Competition: New housing, Wolverhampton

Wolverhampton
  • Comment

Wolverhampton City Council is searching for a design team to deliver new housing on four separate sites

The team chosen for the estimated £150,000 contract will draw up plans for market homes on sites previously used as care homes.

The programme, planned to complete in 2020, is backed by WV Living, a trading company wholly owned by the council and set up to generate council revenue through the sale of new homes. The selected team will develop schemes from RIBA Stage 0 to 3 before taking on a ‘watching brief’ once the project is handed over to a contractor – unless the contractor wishes to hire its own architect.

In its brief, WV Living says it ‘is seeking a capital return on investment from the building and market sale of homes. Delivery of good quality, cost-effective housing is key to achieving the client’s aspirations.’

Wolverhampton, named after King Wulfhere of Mercia, is a major city 20km north-west of Birmingham and home to around 250,000 people.

WV Living was set up two years ago to develop a range of two, three and four bedroom homes on council-owned sites around the city. The company’s first development at Danesmore Pastures on Ashmore Park, Wednesfield, is due to complete in April.

The deadline for applications is 3pm on 16 March.
