ENGIE is working in partnership with Luton Borough Council on a far-reaching regeneration project, creating not just great new places to live - but also a heart of the community that residents can be proud of.
The scope of the project:
We know it takes more than bricks and mortar to create a healthy, vibrant community. That’s why the Marsh Farm project goes beyond that, with the goal of transforming a previously undesirable area into a model of modern inclusive living.
Working with residents, schools, local suppliers and the unemployed, as well as creating great new places to live, meet, shop and share, ENGIE is building a community with a bright future.
The project will be completed across three phases, including demotion of the current shopping centre, and will create 118 modern, energy-efficient homes for rent as well as seven new retail units to boost the local economy.
Key features and outcomes:
• A bespoke comprehensive community investment plan developed with local residents in mind
• 82% local labour
• Seven trainees, apprentices and graduates on site
• Provided over 200 local high school students with mock interviews for career development
• CCS average score of 44 on all phases, with Phase 1 receiving a gold CCS award
