Quebec Park, Whitehill Bordon
Completion Date June 2018
Contract Value £18.5m
Client Radian Group
The Quebec Park development is the first major housing scheme at Whitehill and Bordon, a former garrison town which is currently being transformed into a prosperous and sustainable ‘green’ town following the departure of the MOD in 2015. The 3.26 hectare, 100-home mixed use scheme establishes a standard for future phases and is being used as a test bed for an innovative new analytical process, the Assured Performance Process aimed at reducing the performance gap between design and construction. As part of the wider sustainable agenda, the scheme aimed to provide 100 jobs to match the 100 homes created. A key component of the scheme is the conversion of two former barrack buildings into the Community Employment Hub. The converted buildings are linked by a new build element containing meeting spaces and a community café which opens up onto a new public square. The cafe is now being run by a social enterprise under Radian to train young adults with disabilities in catering and servery skills.
The project won best residential scheme at the RICS Awards South East 2019.
