Ground breaking Artisan residential development


Artisan (UK) Developments Ltd, specialists in the delivery of commercial and industrial buildings, are launching a residential division with a new name and brand identity to be known as Fabrum Distinctive Houses.

The word Fabrum is Latin, meaning ‘a skilful and ingenious artisan’.

Michael Eyres, Managing Director of Artisan Developments comments: ‘We felt the meaning and obvious connection of the word Fabrum with the parent company’s name was fitting and it also reflects our approach to both residential and commercial projects. We will be bringing the same ethos and skillset we employ for our commercial developments to deliver high quality, individual family homes in desirable locations.’

The launch of the new Fabrum brand coincides with the commencement of a niche residential development in Burwell, Cambridgeshire, which will be known as Mandeville Farm.

Just 5 miles from Newmarket and 12 miles north east Cambridge, Burwell is an attractive and popular semi-rural location for families due to its selection of local schools, proximity to Cambridge and excellent transport links. Burwell itself has a good range of amenities with local shops and cafes mainly centred on the High Street and North Street Burwell, including a cafe, bakery, butchers, post office and library.

The development is for five large family homes of approximately 2,500 sq ft each. Three will be four bedroom barn style properties with two, five bedroom cottage style houses. The design and layout of the development reflects the rural location and draws on the site’s former use as a farm yard.

The construction uses a timber frame system providing energy efficient accommodation built to the latest standards and building regulation requirements.

Michael Eyres, Managing Director of Artisan (UK) Developments comments: ‘The launch of Fabrum is a reflection of our commitment to grow the residential side of our business and the Mandeville Farm development represents exactly the kind of niche we are aiming for. High quality, individual family homes in desirable locations’

Mandeville Farm is scheduled for completion by the middle of 2020.

Artisan are currently investigating a number of potential sites for future Fabrum projects.
