YMD Boon delivers city housing

Architecture and construction consultancy Bondholder YMD Boon has designed and delivered a new apartment complex located on Mill Hill Lane in Derby.

In partnership with Bailey Construction, the new Birch View residential scheme offers 14 one and two bed apartments.

Delivered on behalf of Optune Homes and Bondholder Derby City Council, Birch View required a major change of level and careful consideration was taken in order to maximise the space and provide suitable access to future affordable housing residents.

Shari Setayesh, director at YMD Boon, said: “Work has been underway at Birch View since February 2018, so it’s fantastic to see the finished building."

“The scheme has brought more affordable housing to the heart of a wonderful residential area and we’re very pleased to have been a part of this development. We hope future residents enjoy their new homes.”

Scott Bailey, managing director at Bailey Construction, said: “The scheme itself was challenging due to the nature of the site being confined and on a steep slope. We had engaged with YMD Boon to provide architectural assistance with delivering this scheme, and they proved to assist at every point."

Cllr Roy Webb, Cabinet Member for Adults, Health and Housing at Derby City Council, said: “This development evidences the benefit of partnership working to deliver quality, well designed homes on time and on budget. These apartments, now owned by Derby City Council and managed by Derby Homes, the council’s management agent, are adding to and improving our stock of affordable rented accommodation for people within the City.”

YMD Boon is on a number of housing frameworks including emh group and Reallies, and continues to provide architectural services for the affordable housing sector nationwide.
