Fordham House opened its doors to the public on Friday, 15 September, with a VIP event co-officiated by local MP, Nadhim Zahawi, and Chris Cook, Orbit Homes Board Chair.

Opening the development, Nadhim Zahawi MP said, “I was delighted to formally open Fordham House and see the culmination of the innovative project that I visited earlier on during construction. Fordham House is unique in that it will give preference to those working in our NHS, our schools and our emergency services. It truly is a blueprint for development and I was very pleased to be able to celebrate its opening with Orbit and all those involved in the project.”

Fordham House has been developed by Orbit in partnership with Deeley Construction, ABD Developments and Stratford Town Trust and offers enviable priority accommodation to the town’s key workers and locals.

The £10.4m scheme includes 64 spacious one bedroom and 18 two bedroom apartments. Each home is designed with the private market rental customer in mind, with minimum maintenance requirements and finished to an exacting standard with the latest in cutting edge technology.

The myOrbit web app offers a greater digital experience for our private rented customers at Fordham House. It’s an easy and convenient way for customers to manage their tenancy: from viewing their rent account to reporting a repair. myOrbit also includes a series of short videos and welcome information to help customers use the fixtures in their new apartment and settle in to life at Fordham House.
