Jarvis Group

We are delighted to announce our appointment as the main contractor to deliver the next exciting scheme for Thrive Homes, on their largest project to date. Located on St Albans Road in Watford, the project involves the demolition and clearance of an existing car showroom and car park, followed by the construction of 90 stunning new apartments for shared ownership and affordable rent. Spread over 8 and 10 storeys, the new homes will provide affordable modern living within 2 blocks located either side of St John’s Road, with landscaping, communal outdoor space and paved courtyards.

Mark Doyle, CEO for Jarvis Contracting said “We are really looking forward to continuing our very positive working relationship with Thrive, by delivering this flagship development. Over the past few years, we’ve delivered several key projects across Watford and are really pleased to be involved with this very prominent scheme”.

Initial demolition works of the existing car showroom have been carried out, with project completion due in Summer 2021.
