A new £10.2m social housing project designed by Hamilton Architects for Apex Housing Association in Derry has been completed on schedule.

The 127 house scheme, on the site of the former St Peter’s School at Magowan Park, provides bungalows, apartments and 2 & 3 storey dwellings for family and complex needs tenants, along with a play park/landscaped area.

“We are delighted to have been involved in the design of Magowan Park,” said Seamus McCloskey, Partner at Hamilton Architects. “The project has boosted employment in the area as well as providing attractive, much-needed social housing.”

This has included provision of:
  • A family friendly environment
  • Low cost gas heating and instant hot water
  • Use of solar energy and hi spec energy efficient designs
  • Maximum use of environmentally aware suppliers
The principal contractor was BW Homes (formerly Braidwater Ltd). Braidwater has carried out both private developments and social housing projects throughout Northern Ireland and has a number of new schemes coming online soon.
