Focus Consultants
has been appointed by the Waterloo Housing Group on a scheme to redevelop one
of the few derelict sites left in Boston in Lincolnshire into affordable
housing for local people. 
The company has been
secured as Employer’s Agent, CDM Co-ordinator, and Party Wall Surveyor for the
development in Blue Street, on the site of the former Pilgrim Foods depot. The
firm’s energy team will also provide energy carbon sustainability services for
the project, which will create new homes for 41 families. 
Work has just got underway on the £5 million scheme, which
is being built in two phases by D Brown Building Contractors Ltd. The
development has also been supported by Boston Borough Council and the Homes and
Communities Agency. Completion of the scheme is expected in Autumn 2015. 
Trevor Newton, Partner at Focus Consultants, which has an
office at Endeavour Park, Boston, and another at Aubourn in Lincolnshire, said:
“The team at Focus is very pleased to be part of this scheme, which is
returning an area of derelict land in Boston back into use, and will lead to
additional quality affordable homes being available in the town.” 
Focus, which also has offices in London, Nottingham and
Leicester, offers a range of building services to the construction industry,
including building surveying, quantity surveying, project management, CDM Co-ordinator
services and sustainable development support.
