FOB look forward to a busy year in the residential sector in 2013


FOB Live report that against market predictions, it has been actively involved in a wide range of opportunities in the residential sector in the past 12 months including new dwellings, secure facilities, Hotels, lodge developments and major refurbishment/re-modelling projects.

Live Director David Phillips reports ”Whilst the majority of the larger scale residential developments  by the ”majors” have been put on hold or abandoned, there has been a continuing and growing demand in the residential sector at all levels but  particularly with work on the larger scale properties or in exploiting the potential of existing sites with the introduction of new dwellings. 

FOB Live have been actively engaged, working directly for clients or as part of a design and build team. The projects range from new build dwellings, major extensions and modifications, refurbishment, and multi-occupancy projects ranging in value from £50,000 to £3 million

FOB Live have  also been successful in securing significant residential projects for 2013 generally on the back of the success and by recommendations on their active or completed commissions …..and also in the leisure, secure facilities, holiday, hotel and student housing markets that still has significant growth potential”

Cotton Hall Farm Rewarded for its Building Excellence

Cotton Hall Farm near Chester, Save the Family’s latest support complex, opened on 1st October 2011 providing emergency accommodation for 33 homeless families, received some well deserved recognition at the LABC North West Region Building Excellence Awards 2012.

The awards were held at the Reebok Stadium, home of Bolton Wanderers on Friday 11th May 2012 where Cotton Hall Farm was nominated in the ‘Best Small Commercial Building’ Category.

The Awards, for exceptional projects put forward by LABC Local Authorities, are an opportunity to celebrate the very best construction in the Region, recognising the high level of skill and professionalism that the building industry is capable of achieving.

After more than four years of preparation and fundraising, Save the Family’s new Together Village at Cotton Hall Farm near Chester will replicate the activities of Save the Family’s existing family village at Plas Bellin, Flintshire. It  provides homeless families with access to temporary accommodation, adult training facilities and personal support to help them re-settle back into the local community.

The facility provides additional homes to accommodate homeless families, made up of one, two and three-bedroom houses and apartments. Other facilities  include an early intervention nursery for babies and toddlers. The farm’s renovated Dutch Barn  also provides the focus for adult training activities, including workshops, a computer training suite, cookery skills kitchen and community hall for resident use, with a small sports hall for a variety of activities, outdoor play areas and an outdoor sports pitch.

Save the Family’s unique approach in keeping families together has attracted nationwide praise from those concerned with helping the homeless and poverty-hit families.

FOB Design’s Ian Malyan assisted Save the Family in the development of the new Centre by providing Design and Technical support. The Main contractor was Hawk DevelopmentsLtd

FOB are also assisting The Charity with their overall estate management with a view of developing other centres around the Country.
