We’re pleased to report that Mackoy Groundworks have now started on phase three of North Stoneham Park in Eastleigh. And the Mackoy team, as well as our branded plant vehicles, can be seen on site as the third of this 120-home Highwood Group development gets underway.
- Client: Highwood Group.
- Site Name: North Stoneham Park.
- Site Address: Stoneham Lane, Eastleigh.
- Contract Summary: Groundworks & infrastructure for 120 new homes (1500+ in total).
Located on Stoneham Lane in Eastleigh, Hampshire, North Stoneham Park is a residential development consisting of 120 new homes. Split between modern 1-bed flats and semi-detached 2, 3, 4 and 5 bed houses. Comprising of red and natural brick buildings, some with rendered exteriors.
As well as the main infrastructure for all three phases, Mackoy are also lending technical support to Highwood onsite at Stoneham Lane as the project progresses. The scale of which has meant that site drawings are updated on a daily basis. So it’s fair to say our North Stoneham Park project managers are being kept very much on their toes! And doing a cracking job ensuring groundworks progress to time and to plan.
In fact, not only are the homes at North Stoneham Park mindfully designed with the latest mod cons and high-quality interiors. But each one is also energy efficient and backed by a LABC Building warranty that guarantees it for up to 10 years.
Which will service the needs, not only, of the onsite community at North Stoneham Park but also the surrounding catchment too. Further boosting the significance of the new housing scheme to the Eastleigh postcode.
“North Stoneham Park is one of the biggest housing Schemes in the South, and we’re delighted that Highwood Homes appointed a locally based company to oversee the groundworks on this development in the Hampshire region. The team working on site are doing an amazing job and we couldn’t be prouder of the skill and tenacity our workers are demonstrating in helping this ambitious project to take shape.”
As with all of the new build housing projects we’re part of at Mackoys North Stoneham Park requires a lot of machinery and manpower on site. And we’ve been proud to once again recruit among the local Hampshire catchment to deliver this project. As well as supplying our own Mackoy branded excavators and haulage HGVs from our in-house fleet.
We’re always on the hunt for skilled site foreman, surveyors, engineers, plant operatives and more, living in and around the South Coast where the majority of our civil engineering and groundworks contracts take place. If you’re Hampshire, Dorset or Sussex based (or willing to travel in to these areas day to day) don’t hesitate to get in touch and share your CV with us.
We tender for new housing projects on a weekly basis. And our employee headcount has risen from 7 to over 300 since we started in 2011. Not to mention we pride ourselves on our employee initiatives that make Mackoy one of the most rewarding and fun civil engineering and groundworks suppliers to work for.
