About the event

The £70m Indigo development will see 315 homes built in Peterborough for Cross Keys Homes. 

Due to complete in 2024, the development will bring much-needed affordable housing to the area. All of the homes will be let at discounted rents, set at or below 80% of the normal market rate. 

We re-designed the initial scheme with Corstorphine + Wright to improve affordability, and produce a more efficient design that would bring about greater quality and programme and cost certainty. A lot of the learnings efficiencies generated through our Perry Barr Residential Scheme project have been implemented into this scheme. 

The project will make use of innovative construction methods. We’re aiming to make efficiency savings through pre-manufactured value, which will make up around 63% of the project’s value. 

We will also be utilising offsite manufacturing to increase quality, minimise embodied carbon emissions and help to maintain programme certainty. Elements that will be manufactured offsite include a light-gauge steel frame, brick slips and bathroom pods.
