The Beacons is the first phase of a larger three phase regeneration garage site project undertaken on behalf of Golding Homes, BBS was appointed to design and construct three modern bungalows and associated parking bays including the demolition of disused garages in the semi-rural village of Coxheath on the outskirts of Maidstone.
Built of traditional brick and block construction, the one-bedroom bungalows are being offered by Golding Homes for affordable rent. Featuring a full fill cavity insulation to decrease heat loss and lower energy bills.
Sustainability is high on the agenda for our client, Golding Homes, who asked us to include provision for sustainable transport each new dwelling in the form of secure cycle stores. Whenever possible, sustainable methods and materials were used during the construction giving the new buildings a very low carbon footprint and reduced energy requirements. In addition to this, refuse space has been provided to comply with Maidstone Borough Council’s recycling strategy within the garage for recycling and garden for landfill waste.
