Construction News Image
Deanestor has been selected to provide high specification kitchens for a Grainger build-to-rent scheme in Milton Keynes.

The contract awarded by main contractor Bowmer + Kirkland is for the manufacture and installation of 261 high specification kitchens for a new £64 million development.

Developed by Peveril Securities with Mayforth and designed by Pick Everard, the scheme will provide 261 purpose-designed rental homes ranging from studios to one and two-bedroom apartments and three-bedroom duplexes. Construction of two eight-storey blocks is underway on a brownfield site historically occupied by the YMCA.

Deanestor is manufacturing around 4,000 items of furniture for the kitchens in three layouts and both straight run and L-shaped configurations. Two kitchens also feature in the show apartment for the development.

The bespoke base and wall cabinets will have a white carcase with doors and front edges in a high gloss graphite finish to contrast with white flecked solid surface worktops. A tall unit is being supplied to accommodate an integrated fridge freezer and the contract also includes the procurement, supply, and installation of white goods – dishwasher, freestanding washing machine, electric oven and hob, extractor, sink and taps.

Commenting on the project, Wayne Catterall, Project Manager at Bowmer + Kirkland said: "We need the kitchens to be robust and durable for the long-term operation of the buildings, to deliver value for the client, and to contribute to an attractive living environment for residents. We are confident in Deanestor’s ability to achieve the quality, finish and detailing required for the project and to our programme."

William Tonkinson, Managing Director of Deanestor, said: "We are very pleased to be working with Bowmer + Kirkland on our second Grainger build-to-rent scheme. This reaffirms our position as a leading specialist in the supply of contemporary yet long-lasting kitchen solutions to the private rental sector.

"We offer a complete furniture and fitting out service for exceptional quality kitchens and are working for some of the UK’s leading private residential developers and contractors on major schemes for both rent and market sale."

Deanestor is also providing high specification kitchens for a build-to-rent scheme for Grainger in Birmingham.
