The 108-home Bader Close development is the first substantial council house building programme in the town of Ipswich for 50 years.  Constructed by contractors Keepmoat, the first tenants started to move into the dwellings for Christmas 2014.


The Borough Council and Keepmoat scooped top spot in the Social Housing Development of the Year category in the annual Bricks awards.  The Bricks, run by LABC Warranty is in its eighth year and rewards hard work and high skills from developers and contractors.


Rossi Long Consulting was appointed by the Borough Council for pre-planning services including Flood Risk, Drainage Strategy and Transport Planning.  We went on to provide post-contract services for detailed Civil & Structural Engineering elements including foundation and superstructure designs for the dwellings themselves together with external works comprising adoptable and private pavements and drainage.
