Whichers Gate housing development, Hampshire
Whichers Gate is a Bellway Homes development for Aster Group. It is the S106 element of the Montague Green development of new homes in Rowlands Castle, it was a green field site in a, semi-rural location.
The project comprises of 42 Units including Shared ownership and Affordable Rented properties including houses and flats. The properties will be delivered in four phases.
We were appointed Employers Agent to manage the post contract stage of the project. Our role was to replace the clients in-house Employers Agent who had managed the project up to and including the handover of the first 3No Units Phase 1. Our appointment allowed the clients Agent to move on to the delivery of another scheme.
Once appointed we set up a handover meeting on site with the Development Manager, the Employers Agent and the clients Clerk of Works.
This allowed us to review the status of the project both viewing the completed phase 1 units and the status of the further phases. This helped us to understand the client’s requirements along with standard setting. Following this we were provided with the contract documentation, drawings, etc which allowed us to review the information prior to our attendance at the next progress meeting. At the meeting the scheme was formally handed over and Keegans were introduced to Bellways team.
‘We have been engaged with Keegans for the past sixteen months as our Employers Agent for Whichers Gate, Rowlands Castle. This is the S106 element of the Bellway development called Montague Green, which is an attractive collection of new homes in Rowlands Castle, which boasts an enviable, semi-rural location.
Keegans has assisted us with the delivery of 42 homes including shared ownership and affordable rented properties including houses and flats. Keegans has worked well with our team in successfully handing over all of the units with minimal snags. ‘
