Property in Netherfield gets new lease of life as low-cost home


A run down property in Netherfield has been given a new lease of life after being transformed into a modern low-cost home in just four weeks.

The house in Dunstan Street is the second low-cost home to be completed in the town by local firm Think Big Developments.

To celebrate the competition of the works, the firm welcomed the local community to an open day on Friday and invited them on a tour of the recently renovated property.

Deputy Mayor of Gedling, Barbara Miller and the Sheriff of Nottingham, Glyn Jenkins also attended the event and were full of praise for the Dunstan Street transformation.

Working in partnership with New College Nottingham, the initiative provided twenty students with work experience and offered them the opportunity to showcase their skills.

As part of the company’s aim to promote the construction industry in a new light to younger generations, the students were presented with a certificate of completion during an awards ceremony on Friday and the possibility of an apprenticeship across future development schemes.

Project manager James O’Reilly said: “I was proud to be a part of developing the students’ skills throughout the project and provide them with an understanding of the building industry.

Their dedication and willingness to learn inspired me and I hope to work alongside them in the future”.
