VALE SOUTHERN APPOINTED TO DELIVER £3.3M RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT


Vale Southern Construction has been selected to construct a new £3.3m residential development on Hayling Island.


The Portsmouth-based contractor will redevelop the site of a former petrol station to create 19 new apartments and two commercial units. Existing buildings will be demolished to make way for the three-storey scheme, which is scheduled to be completed by May 2023.


The luxury apartments range from 1 to 2 bedrooms spread across all three floors. On site for 65 weeks, Vale Southern will be responsible for both the construction and full fit out of the new homes.


Simon Jones, Senior Construction Manager at Vale Southern Construction, said: “This is a logistically challenging project located on a constrained site on Station Road. To overcome this issue and maximise efficiency, all deliveries will be arranged on a just-in-time basis.


“Careful co-ordination from our site manager, Andrew Parsons, will avoid any disruption to local roads and allow building materials to be hoisted into position directly from our delivery vehicles.”


The development is being brought forward by D&L Southern Ltd. Director Louis Savage said: “We’re pleased to be working with Vale Southern to deliver this new development which will breathe new life into a redundant site. The team’s specialist knowledge of both the residential and commercial sectors will enable us to transform the space quickly and effectively, bringing much needed new homes to the area as well as units suitable for local retailers.”
