The Brief

Mick George Ltd completed the first phase of demolition works on behalf of principal contractor Galliford Try Partnerships for the new Independent Living Scheme in Houghton Regis.

The 1.46hectare development will be based on the former Co-operative site and will include 168 one and two-bedroom apartments for rent, shared ownership and outright purchase.

The scheme will also incorporate a host of other community amenities, including; restaurants, retail space, care facilities, and beauty treatment salons.

This modern independent living development for the over 55’s is the third of its kind in Central Bedfordshire, following on from the successful ‘Priory View’ in Dunstable and ‘Greenfields’ in Leighton Buzzard.

Houghton Regis Central is set to be managed by the Central Bedfordshire Council, and it reflects a key priority to invest in care and accommodation to meet the needs of their older residents. 


For what was a particularly complex Demolition project, Mick George Ltd made it look very simple, handling all requirements in a thoroughly professional manner. No stone was left unturned with regards to safety or scheduling, with the constraints of the site fully considered from the outset. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mick George Ltd for its Demolition services.
