Sarah Boden, Chief Executive of Severnside said “We are looking forward to partnering with SJ Roberts Construction Ltd on this extremely significant redevelopment project in the historical Abbey Foregate area of Shrewsbury. These are really exciting times for Severnside as Heaths Houses will also be our first foray into building homes for sale on the open market.”
Michael Sambrook, Managing Director, SJ Roberts Construction Ltd added “We are delighted to be selected as Main Contractor on this very prestigious project and to be working once again with Severnside Housing. We look forward to providing the homes that this site deserves, being one of the main gateways into Shrewsbury.
