Larkfleet and the amazing elevating house!

It's been another busy time at Larkfleet HQ with our CEO Karl Hick appearing on BBC Radio Lincolnshire talking about the latest Larkfleet venture - The Elevating House.

So, what it's all about I hear you ask!? Well, as you know, at Larkfleet we struggle to stay still for two minutes, so it's only natural that we should come up with yet another great idea (even if we do say so ourselves!)

We present to you a house that elevates! So far, we are in the planning process with South Holland District Council and if it gives us permission, we plan to build a three-bedroom detached house in Weston Hills, near Spalding, Lincolnshire that can be raised up to 1.5 metres above ground level by eight mechanical jacks!

Karl said: "The elevating house effectively eliminates the risk of flood damage to homes so that more land across the country can be approved for future home building. This will help to tackle the 'housing crisis' that is being caused by the demand for new housing far exceeding the supply."

Larkfleet at student open evening

As part of the ongoing Larkfleet Community Programme, we spent some time at an open evening at The Greater Peterborough University Technical College to give students an insight into a new career in construction.

It was a great event attended by local businesses promoting the industry offering students hints, tips and advice on how to embark on a promising career in construction.

GPUTC is an exciting new college in the heart of Peterborough and is very much based on training for the 'world of work'. Larfkleet is delighted to be part of this great initiative

We are one of only three local 'employer sponsors' and have been involved right from the outset of the project, donating both cash and expertise to help to get the college started.

Larkfleet continues to shine in the community!

Yes, we are at it again and we don't just mean building amazing new homes.

Larkfleet understands the importance of working with the local community. As a responsible business we want to ensure we can 'give something back' and that's why our recent collaboration with the fantastic charity Shine means so much. 

By sponsoring a virtual balloon race, Larkfleet can help to support people affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus (a build-up of fluid on the brain).

The race is organised by Peterborough-based charity Shine and people have the chance to watch and track their balloon as it races to the (virtual) finish line.

Shine has been running fund-raising balloon races for about 40 years but moved them into the online world in 2009 because of concern about the environmental impact of balloons littering the countryside. People can buy a ‘virtual balloon’ which can then be decorated, tracked and even have its journey influenced on social media!

The Shine computer takes account of real-world weather conditions and factors such as the amount of gas in each balloon as it continuously calculates the position of each race entrant following the online ‘launch’. The winning balloon is the one that travels furthest on the virtual map.

Larkfleet Homes and sister company Allison Homes are sponsoring Shine’s Benny Bear New Year Balloon Race. Benny Bear is the Shine ‘mascot’, a character who has hydrocephalus and works with children to raise awareness of the condition and its impact.

Asif Shaheed of Shine said: “The sponsorship from Larkfleet provides essential funding which allows Shine’s team to contact companies and individuals across the country and encourage them to buy a balloon in the race. We have sold more than £70,000 worth of balloons already – and the race does not actually start until 3 January when we will ‘launch’ the balloons from Larkfleet’s headquarters in Bourne.”

Helen Jones, director of marketing at Larkfleet, said: “We are delighted to sponsor The Benny Bear New Year Race as part of our programme of support for local communities and charities.

“Shine is an amazing charity and the balloon race is a fun way to raise money for a serious and worthwhile cause.”
