Brooks are currently renovating 4 barns to dwellings using traditional lime mortar,  reclaimed bricks & clay hand made roof tiles to conservation standards with a further 8 new build dwellings mixing traditional barn style with a contemporary twist for M F Strawson Ltd. Canters estate agents are agents for the site with around half sold s.t.c. The site required demolition to make way for the new dwellings and the renovation of the existing barns stood derelict for 26 years to new dwellings nearing completion. Brooks have also carried out the main civil work including the connection & installation of the main surface water & foul drainage and are approved by Anglian Water to carry out drainage connections & works as from June 2015.

Waltham Windmill Golf Club Balcony

Brooks were invited to provide cost analysis with the architects at the planning stage and subsequently received the contract to construct the much anticipated extension to provide a balcony area for members to enjoy after golf games and to provide the many functions including weddings, christenings etc... with an area that makes full use of the breathtaking views of the golf course. 

The construction is mainly steel with hardwood timber decking to all floors and stairs. Handrails are formed using brushed stainless steel posts that hold the clear toughened glass units to give unobstructed views of the course. The hardwood handrail finishes off the section. Projects of this type throw up a number of challenges, for instance, to minimise impact on the enjoyment of members golfing and social activities and involved working closely with staff and social members to achieve this aim. Uplighting and mood lighting add ambiance well in to the late hours of the summer nights. A lift was also installed within the building to provide access to the 1st floor along with a revised strategy for emergency lighting and fire alarms.

Eco-homes on course for Waltham
30-09-2011 10:57

ECO-FRIENDLY house- hunters have been snapping up properties on a new £17 million 'green' estate in Waltham.

As reported, work began on the 49-home Waltham Windmill project – which has been built on land bordering Waltham Golf Club and is thought to be one of the first developments of its kind in the county – in 2006.

​BUILDING UP: Jason Brooks, director of Brooks Building Contractors Now developers MF Strawson Ltd, who also own the golf course, say all the completed houses have already been sold, and the final 12 houses will be complete by next summer – half of which should be ready to move in to by March.

The Golf Course Lane properties are all level four sustainable homes – a government standard for homes which are 44 per cent energy efficient.

All have outside air source heat pumps, which are around one third more efficient than traditional gas boilers, and are so heavily insulated they are up to 100 per cent better at retaining heat than the average house.

Despite the high price of the luxurious homes, some of which have been sold for around £500,000, a spokesman for the firm said it was having no problems selling them.

They say those moving in know they can expect cheaper bills and, in an additional boost, the Government is even considering offering grants to level four homeowners.

Jason Brooks, managing director of construction firm Brooks Building Contractors, said: "The houses cost thousands more to build than the average home, but whoever moves in will really see the benefits.

"The Government are really keen on sustainable houses to use less gas, for which demand outstrips supply in the UK, so there may well be a premium available to people with outside air pumps in the future, although it is not yet confirmed.

"We have had no problem selling them so far, despite the high value, which shows the people are still willing to invest in the right homes in the right location."

Councillor Alex Wallace, North East Lincolnshire Council's portfolio holder for the environment and strategic housing, said: "When weighing up the needs of the housing market and environmental issues, this type of property is to be welcomed.

"Energy efficient homes such as these contribute greatly to our community's aim of reducing carbon emissions and preserving natural resources, and it is clear that, in the future, more homes will be made to these standards, if not even higher standards of efficiency."
