The Challenge:

Taking what was previously the Manor and Kingsway Hospitals and delivering vastly improved connectivity to the rest of the city, as well as supporting the aspirations of local authority partners in providing more high quality affordable housing within the area with 28% of all homes being designated as affordable.

The Solution:

The £100m Manor Kingsway is being built over seven years and being delivered by a partnership made up of Kier Partnership Homes, Derby City Council, the Homes and Communities Agency and Nottingham Community Housing Association.

Kier was appointed by the city council and HCA two years ago to deliver the project. Since then the team has been working with Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Derby Hospital NHS Trust and East Midlands Ambulance Service to develop designs for the new neighbourhood. Several of the larger houses echo the design of the original hospital buildings, with red brick and distinctive Dutch gables.

The Impact:

Manor Kingsway is one of the first five UK developments to meet Building for Life 12 – the revised national benchmark for well-designed housing in England.

It was also the first to achieve 12 ‘green lights’ and Diamond Status.

" The development, which will be completed in nine phases, has been carefully master planned. Several of the larger houses echo the design of the original hospital buildings, with red brick and distinctive Dutch gables. Although the development as a whole is still in its early stages, the completed areas already have a sense of community, and it will be fascinating to watch future progress at Manor Kingsway. "
