Good news for Downwell as we have just been appointed by Main Contractor Keepmoat to carry out the main Demolition Works on the Estate. Purley House will make way for the new housing development. The estate was built in the 1960’s, with a mixture of flats and houses as part of the post-war expansion of Luton.
Works will see the existing shopping centre demolished by Downwell Demolition to make way for 118 new residential homes for rent, two blocks of retail units and associated infrastructure and landscaping works. The scheme will be delivered in three phases over a three-year period.
The first phase will provide 24 apartments above a new shopping facility comprised of seven retail units on the former Purway Close site. Phase two will involve the demolition of the Purley Centre, to construct 94 modern residential units in the third and final phase.
Downwell have Demolition Works experience on similar regeneration projects and are currently carrying Asbestos Surveying Works on the existing buildings.
We will be posting progress pictures and information during the next few months.
