29 Oct Trevenson Park South Nominated for National Housing Award
The Trevenson Park project in Pool, Cornwall has been nominated for a National Housing Award: Daily Telegraph ‘Homebuilding and Renovating Award’, which highlights the best residential developments, self builds, renovations and conversions in the country. The awards are designed to capture projects of all sizes, budgets and styles.
Trevenson Park South, located next to the multi-award winning Heartlands Project (also delivered by WWA), has been nominated in the custom-build category. The scheme, being developed by the UK Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), Carillion-igloo and Coastline Housing, involves the construction of 150 new and affordable homes.
Among this development, 54 homes will be available as custom plots. This allows people to purchase the plot of land, choose a manufacturer and customise their own home.
Carillion-igloo custom-build head Jon Sawyer said: “Custom-build is ideal for the 67% of people who would not buy from volume house builders”. “The customer can come to Carillion-igloo’s plot shop, choose where they want to live on our site, from our panel of home manufacturers and get independent mortgage advice. They can then work with their chosen home manufacturer to customise their dream home and will receive regular progress reports as their home is built for them.”
Ward Williams Associates are providing quantity surveying services on this project and are thrilled that the scheme has been shortlisted, receiving well deserved recognition for its innovative housing delivery model.
