How Anderson won post-pandemic contracts worth £11m
14 June 2021
In the past two months, Anderson has secured £11 million of new contracts as demand for housing returns to pre-pandemic levels.
The company won the two new contracts as part of the current building boom, which is set to spearhead the national recovery, boost the economy and help meet the Government’s target of building 300,000 new homes per year.
The latest project to be awarded is the second phase of the Great Wilsey Park development for Redrow Homes (Eastern) in Haverhill, Suffolk, which comes complete with a contract value of approximately £10m.

The development of 2,500 three and four bedroom homes located near Cambridge, will see Anderson take responsibility for all groundworks and infrastructure; including drainage, water management, carriageways and footways.
Anderson secured the first phase of the Redrow development in September 2020. The second phase will take the total order value for development close to £20m.
In addition, Anderson has been awarded a £1m groundworks contract for phase three of a 160-home Hopkins Homes development at the former Needham Market Quarry.
For the Hopkins development, the team will be involved in phase three having completed on phases one and two, taking the contract value to near £10m.
Andrew Nowosad, Associate Commercial Director of Construction at Anderson, said: “Both projects clearly demonstrate the importance of securing the first phase on multi-phase developments, which then present opportunities as subsequent phases come on stream. I would like to congratulate the whole team for securing these key additions to existing projects following the continued hard work from the site teams in maintaining our excellent reputation.
“A huge amount of hard work and effort has gone into securing future workload to the wider business. This has been a very challenging year for the industry, but the building sector has bounced back bigger and stronger than ever before which bodes well for the wider economy.”
