The Grain Yard in Borehamwood, by multi award-winning developer, GRIGGS, is now complete.

On Monday, February 28, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held on site to celebrate the completion of the affordable homes and the handover to Watford Community Housing.

The Grain Yard is one of Hertfordshire’s most prestigious developments, which sold in record time. The collection of architecturally distinctive homes were designed using a select palette of materials to complement their verdant surroundings and include a mix of 6 affordable homes, 13 private ownership homes, and one commercial premises which is the new HQ for GRIGGS.

To add to its success, the development won Best Development, Best Mixed-Use Development, Best Office Development and Best Development Marketing at the UK Property Awards in 2021.

Chris Griggs, director of GRIGGS, commented: “We are proud to deliver upon our commitment to fulfil local demand for high quality affordable housing.

“We are delighted with how our team has managed to seamlessly integrate the affordable housing into this award-winning development, using the highest quality materials and design standards to set the bar for what we believe are the best affordable homes in Hertfordshire.

“Our commitment to lasting quality is at the core of everything we do, so it follows that our affordable homes should be built to the same exacting standards as our exclusive private ownership homes.

“Transacting with Watford Community Housing marks the beginning of what we hope will be long and fruitful relationship.

“We fully intend to work together on future schemes, given our success working together at The Grain Yard.”

Helen Town, group director of Partnerships at Watford Community Housing, added: “The Grain Yard embodies all that we can achieve through partnership working – homes of the highest standard that are attainable for all, and a lasting collaboration that benefits our residents.

“We’re thrilled to be part of this project and we look forward to all that Watford Community Housing can accomplish with GRIGGS in future too.”
