Topping out at Kylna Court


Topping out ceremony for Dacorum Borough Council's Kylna Court developmentOur new housing block in Wood Lane End, Maylands, Hemel Hempstead, has officially been named ‘Kylna Court’.

Kylna (pronounced kil-nah) is an old English word meaning a kiln and was chosen because of the historic use of nearby land as clay pits and brick kilns.

At a topping out ceremony Council Leader Councillor Andrew Williams was joined by other Councillors, the housing management team as well as the main contractor, Jarvis Construction, to celebrate the progress on the new seven-storey block.

Portfolio Holder for Housing, Councillor Margaret Griffiths, said: “Kylna Court is our largest development so far, bringing 79 much-needed new homes as well as business units. We are pleased to be meeting our aims to make best use of previously developed land. The innovative modern design will stand as a landmark at this corner location, bringing character to a key site in the Maylands Industrial Area.”

Completion is due in autumn 2018, and the homes will be allocated to local people in housing need.
