Mansfield-based contract furniture manufacturer Deanestor has been awarded a £4m fitout contract for main contractor Midgard for a £260m Moda build-to-rent community in Hove.
This is Deanestor’s second project for a Moda Living neighbourhood.
Designed by Whittam Cox Architects, Sackville Road is an intergenerational urban village on a 9-acre site which will provide 564 apartments for rent to suit all ages, lifestyles, and requirements. Residents in the six apartment buildings will benefit from communal lounges, roof spaces and open terraces, private dining areas, cafes, shops, 24/7 gyms, and 50,000sqft of office and co-working space.
Deanestor will manufacture and install 572 bespoke kitchens for the studios and one, two and three-bed apartments and offices, and 916 fitted wardrobes, all to Moda’s high specification interior design.
Commenting on this latest contract award, William Tonkinson, Managing Director of Deanestor, said: “We are delighted to have secured our second and largest contract for Moda to date. Our sister company Offsite Solutions is providing the bathroom pods for this development – which means that between both businesses, we have been awarded more than £8m of contracts for Sackville Road.”
Construction on the site of a disused industrial park is now underway and scheduled for completion in 2024. The masterplan also includes 260 community care homes, as well as a public square, landscaped pathways, and extensive public realm and gardens.
Also now underway is a £3m furniture and fitout contract for a new build-to rent neighbourhood for Moda in Glasgow. On this project, Deanestor is working with Robertson Group to provide the kitchens and fitted wardrobes for Moda Holland Park. This will bring the total number of kitchens being manufactured by Deanestor for Moda to over 1,000 and wardrobes to more than 1,500.
