Stepnell showcases end-to-end approach with new development

Work has begun on site for a unique housing project,  fully developed, built and managed by Stepnell.

Stepnell – who has owned the site in Rugby for more than 50 years – brought forward a development of three homes to maximise the potential of the site, which previously consisted of a single bungalow and grounds.

The development showcases the company’s ability to act as a complete construction partner, having taken the project through planning and pre-construction using its in-house teams ahead of starting on site.

Once completed, the properties will be let and managed by Stepnell’s property management and maintenance teams.

Edward Wakeford, property director at Stepnell, said: “We’re delighted to have started on site with these new properties, which will make great use of the space available and provide additional housing for the area.

“Delivering this project entirely within the Stepnell family means that we are able to work in a much more streamlined way. This end-to-end approach provides continuity – not just throughout the build, but also into the marketing and letting of the properties through property management team.”

Following the successful progress of the development, the construction firm is actively looking to bring forward similar schemes across the West Midlands region.

Wakeford said: “Alongside our expertise as a building contractor, Stepnell has an established track record as a landlord and property manager which has been built over the last half century.

“The completed scheme in Rugby will provide an excellent case study for our complete construction partner approach and will illustrate how we can add value for clients moving forward.”

The project, which consists of two semi-detached houses and a bungalow, is scheduled for completion in January 2020.
