Potter Raper Partnership         fits the bill...


Crossman House

The redundant Crossman House office building in Braintree was demolished to make way for 21 affordable flats in the prime town-centre location for Iceni Homes. The 21 flat development comprises 12 one-bed flats and 9 two-bed flats. Potter Raper Partnership are pleased to announce that the second phase of works has been handed over.

The project received funding from Colne Housing, and a grant from the HCA and Braintree DC. The properties will be available for affordable rent and allocated via Braintree District Council.

A new road has been constructed to access the two new apartment blocks.

Residents were given the chance to create history by submitting suggestions for a new street name. Colne’s Chief Executive Sara Thakkar said: "This is a great opportunity for local people to come up with a brand new street name which will, quite literally, put this development on the map". The new street has now been named 'Great Eastern Close'.

We are pleased to be a part of this development which provide much needed new-homes. Potter Raper Partnership acted as the Employer’s Agent, Quantity Surveyors, Principal Designers and Party Wall Surveyors.
