Bespoke housebuilder Harvey Homes has challenged the 207 pupils from Lower Peover C.E Primary School to enter a competition and draw their best predictions for the homes of the future.
Two classes from the school also recently got the opportunity to visit Harvey Homes’ new site – Swan Green – in Knutsford for inspiration and to see first-hand the processes involved in building luxury homes from the foundations up.
The students have until 22nd November to submit their responses and have been asked to consider what possible building materials could be used for their futuristic homes and how spaces could be used for different purposes.
Harvey Homes Group is currently constructing 30 high-quality homes in Lower Peover, Knutsford on Middlewich Road.
Co-Founder and Director of Harvey Homes, Tom Harvey Ratcliffe, said: “One of the major advantages of the Swan Green development for future residents is the proximity to the traditional village of Lower Peover, with all its amenities and charm.
“We have designed the homes so that they will complement the area while also providing a sustainable place in which local families can live for many years to come.
“As such, we wanted to ensure that we engage with the local community as much as possible during the build and involve them in the process. It was fantastic to see the local children enjoying their visit to the site and learning about the different building techniques.
“We can’t wait to see their ideas for the ‘homes of the future’ – maybe one of their drawings will inspire our future designs!”
The headteacher at Lower Peover C.E Primary School, Mrs Sharon Dean, said: “Collaborating with local businesses is a great way to give our students new opportunities and insights into different industries. The site visit that many of our pupils enjoyed gave them a real understanding of how houses are built and has inspired them to think about how the design of a home can shape a family’s life.”
Rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, Lower Peover C.E Primary School, was founded in 1710 and is a well-established and thriving educational setting for children aged 4-11.
Harvey Homes is a luxury housebuilding group formed last year by father and son Nick and Tom Harvey Ratcliffe.
The homes at Swan Green range from two-bedroom mews and semi-detached homes to four and five-bedroom detached houses. Contact 0161 468 2728 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
