Spawforths Architects Awarded Highly Commended at LABC Awards
Spawforths, the award-winning consultancy specialising in architecture, town-planning and urbanism, has been awarded Highly Commended in the New Housing Site category at the LABC West Yorkshire Building Excellence Awards 2017 .The accolade, which recognises the consultancy’s work on the St Swithins Housing Development for Bridge Homes, was announced at a glittering awards ceremony which took place on Thursday 29th June 2017 at Unity Works in Wakefield.
The design team, client and contractor worked closely together to construct a scheme which took a value added approach to housing delivery balancing social and commercial considerations equally. This approach enabled Bridge Homes to deliver quality housing for both private sale and the public realm, whilst also meeting affordable housing requirements and offering a comprehensive developer contributions package. With significant time having been spent on both the external appearance of the dwellings and the internal fittings, the properties are sure to appeal to future buyers.
Building on the success of the St Swithins project, the team continue to work with Bridge Homes and Saul Construction to deliver a project for 96 dwellings at Thornesgate in Wakefield. The site, which will launch a new sales area in the Autumn, will include a range of house types including both traditional and contemporary style dwellings.
