Ring Stones Completes 17 Unit Development to Provide Affordable Homes in Burnley

Ring Stones Maintenance and Construction has completed work on a 17-unit project in Harle Skye, Burnley, to help provide affordable homes for those in the area.

The new homes are located on May Tree Close and consist of 9x 2 bed houses and 8x 3 bed houses. Each house benefits from a rear turfed garden and dedicated driveway with electric car charging port installed, as a condition of the planning requirements.

The project began in November 2019 and, despite unexpected site closures due to COVID restrictions and severe weather issues, the New Build team worked longer days and weekends to ensure that the project could be finished in a timely manner.

Ring Stones used local sub-contractors to create five new job and apprenticeship opportunities for the electrical, plumbing, decorating and brick laying requirements

The scheme on May Tree Close was also one of the first in which Ring Stones supported the Government’s new Kickstart programme to help provide valuable work experience to unemployed 16 – 24 year olds, in collaboration with Calico Enterprise.

The project came in under the original CSA budget and was subsequently handed over to Calico Homes mid-March 2021.

James Macaree, Managing Director at Ring Stones, said: “It’s great to see how hard the teams have worked on this site, despite the barriers faced. There was no recommendation for improvement received from a recent H&S visit, which is a huge credit to the New Build team as a whole.”
