Orbit Homes, Queensway Court, Independent Living Leamington Spa

This scheme is a flagship, affordable-living development for Orbit Homes, designed to create a community-spirited environment

This design and build scheme of 179 one and two bedroom apartments, is designed to offer residents Orbit Homes vision of ´Independent Living’.

Aimed at the over-55s, the development will provide affordable accommodation with fixtures and fittings which enable the tenants to live independently for longer with the security of onsite care.

It features a wide range of facilities including a restaurant, café, hairdressing salon and IT suite – many of which will be available for use by the wider community.

The three and four-storey development is unique in the sense that it has been designed to achieve a Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 and a BREEAM rating of Very Good. The inclusion of a CHP plant, photovoltaic panels and other energy-saving fittings helped Deeley achieve these challenging targets.

The client has benefited from the collaboration between Deeley Properties and Deeley Construction by having a developer and multidiscipline contractor as one point of contact.
