Case study

The project: development of 7 houses.

Location: Northwich, Cheshire.

Client: Goldfinch Promotions.

Spring 2019.

SLE Services was the main contractor, chosen because of a long track record delivering quality workmanship across all trades on similar housing developments; contracts completed on time and on budget for clients in Cheshire, Shropshire and Lancashire.

The Project is for the construction of seven affordable homes that are to be sold at 35% below market value and tied to affordability for the lifespan of the properties.


Goldfinch Promotions is financing the development as a philanthropic venture.

The Build commenced with offsite works in October 2018 with the houses breaking ground in January 2019. All properties have been sold and full occupation is anticipated by October 2019.

SLE Services is the principal contractor with all work including highways, services and utilities forming part of the remit. SLE employs direct labour and has a dedicated team of specialist sub-contractors who have worked with the company for many years.

Commencing from a green field site, the project required the construction of an access road to the development from the main highway and the installation of all mains services: gas, water, foul and surface water drainage and electricity as well as provision of ducting and draw cables for data and telecoms services.
