Social landlord Riverside has named Wates Living Space as its build partner on a £54 million extra care scheme.
The partnership will see the two firms deliver over 300 extra care apartments in Hull, as part of a contract to design, build and manage three extra care schemes for the city council.
The facilities are being built to serve vulnerable adults in the area, including the elderly, those with dementia and those who need support to live alone.
The apartments will allow residents to live independently and participate in their community.
It is expected that plans will be finalised by all parties and contracts signed in October, following a period of community consultation.
Joanne Jamieson, Wates' regional managing director, said: “Our role in this project is testament to our experience and ability to deliver high quality, comfortable homes in a safe and secure environment that enable vulnerable residents to live independently. We look forward to working alongside Riverside to deliver upon their commitment to Hull City Council and the city’s communities.”
Wates is expected to complete the project by 2016.
