Our Midlands region was praised by local MP Alan Duncan for doing an “excellent job” at the popular Orchid development in Oakham, Rutland.
Mr Duncan, who represents Rutland and Melton, was given a guided tour of the 125 high quality houses and apartments and hailed them as a “welcome enhancement” to the area.
The site – formerly part of Catmose College – has been transformed and also helped to fund the building of the Vale of Catmose College School, completed in spring 2011.
Mr Duncan, who is Minister of State for International Development, met Linden Homes Midlands technical director Barry Maynard to discuss key industry issues as well as the construction of the new school by our parent company, Galliford Try.
Mr Duncan said: “This is a welcome enhancement to the area, and suits its location very well. Linden Homes has done an excellent job, and the project has been an essential component in the development of the Catmose campus.”
Mr Maynard added: “We are proud of this development and the associated school that was part-funded by it. It was a welcome opportunity to chat to Mr Duncan about the development and the Linden Homes way of building high quality schemes and indeed communities.”
