Quebec Park is the first major housing development at Whitehill and Bordon and is set to be an exemplar sustainable community. Located on the former Ministry of Defence Quebec Barracks site, the 3.26 hectare, 100-home scheme will establish a stander for the future phases, and provide a boost to the town’s economy after the MOD departure beyond 2015.
The homes are a mix of private and affordable family houses and flats, built to Code 5 and Zero Carbon Hub standards. Principally adopting a ‘fabric first’ approach, they incorporate a range of primarily passive measures to reduce their carbon emissions.
A key feature and component of the scheme is the conversion of two former barrack buildings into a community employment bub creating 50 new jobs. The converted buildings are linked by a glazed atrium, housing a café and meeting spaces, with new public square at the rear of the development
Abri is proud to announce the Quebec Park development was the winner of the Planning Awards “Best use of Brownfield Land” category and was shortlisted for a number of other awards, including the National Housing Awards for “Best Design” & “Best Large Development” and the Housing Design Awards.
