Le Squez Phase 2c completes
Work has completed on Phase 2c of the regeneration scheme at Le Squez.
Works on this phase began in January 2012 with AC Mauger, main contractor, building 21 flats and three houses on the site on behalf of the States of Jersey. The work is being carried out as part of the Regeneration Scheme commissioned by the States of Jersey to create good quality and sustainable homes.
Le Squez 2c comprises of 10 one bedroom flats, 9 two bedroom flats, 2 three bedroom flats and 3 three bedroom houses, together with a communal courtyard with planted areas and seating.
Carl Scott, AC Mauger Site Manager at Le Squez, said that the project had run well, especially after the difficult start, due to the adverse weather conditions experienced. He says, "Our brief from the client was to create fit for purpose social housing as well as building several units that have been specially designed for people with disabilities and those with special needs."
The project was a challenging one due to various patches of bad weather that could have impacted on the programme. The single block insulated render system is a waterproof system, however insulated render cannot be laid in wet weather so Carl and the team had to work around the weather ensuring the block work could dry and the project stay on schedule.
Housing Minister Deputy Andrew Green MBE has said "The regeneration programme at Le Squez is a very exciting project. It is more than just delivering new homes, it is important to note that we are making some significant social and environmental improvements that will make the estate a much nicer place to live."
