Proctor & Matthews and Shedkm to build 400 modular homes for Urban Splash

Urban Splash Northstowe housing scheme

Architects to co-design the development

Proctor & Matthews has been lined up to build more than 400 homes in the centre of Northstowe new town in Cambridgeshire.

The architect is working with Urban Splash which last week announced that Japanese housebuilding giant Sekisui House was taking a 35% stake in the business.

If it wins planning, the project, on part of the former RAF Oakington base six miles from Cambridge, will be one of the largest sites in the country using modern methods of volumetric construction. All 406 homes will be built off-site at the developer’s factory in Alfreton, Derbyshire.
