Engie has started redeveloping a brownfield site with construction works worth £16.2m council housing development. The Cheshire project will be built with 138 homes. This QWest Homes in Winsford is a joint venture with Cheshire West & Chester Council (CWAC).
Five out of 138 homes are designed to be zero carbon with £4m backing from the Homes England Accelerated Construction funding programme. There’s an involvement of Salford-based ForViva Housing Group in this redevelopment project.
Construction is expected to complete in February 2023. QWest Homes is an offshoot of Engie’s already established QWest Services joint venture with the council, which supplies various public services.
