Allon Homes Specify Locally Made Products From Summerbridge
Posted: 25 September, 2021
Kitchen and Bathroom cabinets from UK manufacturer, Summerbridge, have been installed in a stunning new build project by Allon Homes, sited on the last plot of land in the prestigious Pearson Park district of Hull.
The new construction of eight flats has been sympathetically designed to sit between a Grade 2 listed property and a care home, both of which are large period buildings. The site was purchased in December last year and will complete at the end of September 2021.
Allon Homes, a family run business with 10 employees, largely focus on new build homes and in normal times develop between 15-20 properties a year. The new Pearson park property will comprise of six two-bedroom and 2 one-bedroom apartments, that will shortly be available for rent.
The biggest challenge faced on this latest site for Allon Homes, were the foundations. They refrained from using a traditional piling system, due to the noise and vibrations it would cause in such close proximity to the neighbouring buildings. Instead, they used an auger system, drilling each of the 76 required piles down seventeen metres and injecting each one with concrete.
The majority of building materials used in the project were supplied by MKM in Stoneferry, including the locally made Kitchen and Bathroom cabinets from Summerbridge. Each apartment kitchen is different, all with vinyl wrapped cabinet doors but provided in both a slab or a shaker style finish in various colourways and with complementary durable oak block worktops. The kitchens are all part of an open plan living room offering the occupier lots of space to further personalise the area.
Each bedroom has its own en-suite shower room with a walk-in shower and vanity unit supplied by Summerbridge too. The bathroom furniture styles vary from a contemporary wall hung Spa range with the latest concrete effect finish to a traditional vanity unit, with freestanding legs finished in painted Dakar, offering a warm grey tone.
“We chose Summerbridge products following a number of visits to their manufacturing facility in Anlaby. Here we met the team, saw how the products were made and we were impressed with the quality and price of their products. They are a great local trade supplier and we have been happy with the resulting service.” Said Marcus Allon, Director of Allon Homes.
