Morgan Sindall subsidiary Lovell has started on a £2.1m social housing development for Wirral Council.
Lovell will deliver 23 new homes on sites owned by the local authority in Seacombe, Bebington and Prenton. The project is backed by £1.44m from the Homes & Communities Agency.
Lovell, based locally in John Street, Birkenhead, will build nine two-bedroom bungalows, eight two-bedroom flats, four two-bedroom houses and two three-bedroom houses. The housing development, set to be finished in autumn 2011, will be managed on behalf of the Council by Wirral Partnership Homes.
Properties will meet Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes, the system for measuring the environmental performance of new housing, making them 44% more energy efficient than the standards set by current building regulations.
