Classic Builders is proud to reveal its recently completed project (Forge Orchard) has enjoyed a personal inspected from HRH The Prince of Wales.

Set within the village of Powerstock in Dorset, Forge Orchard is a collection of eight newly constructed dwellings. The unique development was led by Powerstock District Community Land Trust (PDCLT) and Hastoe Housing Association to provide much needed high-quality homes for local residents.

Classic Builders completed the construction of the beautiful dwellings in Spring 2019. Whilst recently visiting Dorset, HRH The Prince of Wales paid a visit to the site site, inspected the properties and spoke with local residents.

Adam Brimacombe, Director of Classic Builders, had this to say about the royal visit –

We’re exceptionally proud to have had HRH The Prince of Wales personally inspect one of our projects. Our business was founded 16 years ago and its moments like this that remind us how far our company has come. I would personally like to thank our incredible team for continually giving its very best and for all those who contributed to delivering such an incredible project.

Giles Staines, Contracts Manager for Classic Builders (assigned to the Forge Orchard Project) had this to add –

Forge Orchard is an incredible project and everyone at Classic Builders is proud to have welcomed our future King to the development. We work with a number of trusts and housing providers but PDCLT and Hastoe Housing Association have been a pleasure to work with. We would like to wish all of the residents many happy years in their new homes.

Renowned for his support of architecture and high-quality homes, HRH The Prince of Wales enjoyed a guided tour of the site,  visited a number of properties, walked the grounds, chatted to the development’s residents and planted  a distinctive Brown’s apple tree for future generations to harvest from.

Classic Builders would like to express its gratitude to Clarence House, Powerstock District Community Land Trust, Hastoe Housing Association and the residents of Forge Orchard.
