Galliford Try Partnerships’ South East business is celebrating double success having scooped ‘Best Supported/ Sheltered Housing Scheme’ at the Housing Excellence Awards and ‘Best Development’ at the Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2017.
Protheroe House, a £9.1million purpose-built extra care development in Tottenham for One Housing Group, claimed the ‘Best Supported/Sheltered Housing Scheme’ at the Housing Excellence Awards, building on an earlier accolade for innovation in the same category the Housing Innovation Awards.
The 50-home development for over 55s was recognised for supporting residents to live independently and meeting their individual needs partly through self-contained, well-designed spacious flats that are both accessible and adaptable to allow for the changing needs of residents.
Meanwhile, the Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2017 named Upton Village, the regeneration of the former Plaistow Hospital site, as ‘Best Development’ in the Affordable Homes category.
The project created 168 high-quality mixed-tenure homes combining new build and refurbishment of the hospital’s Victorian buildings. It had already been shortlisted in previous years in the Evening Standard awards, and had picked up a nomination last year for the Inside Housing Top 60 awards.
Great Eastern Quays, phase one, was also highly commended at the awards in the category for ‘Best Apartment’.
Stuart Brodie, Managing Director of the Partnerships & Regeneration South East business said: “Congratulations to both of the teams behind these schemes. The awards, once again, demonstrate our ability to build high-quality homes on behalf of our clients, and lead the sector in the delivery of affordable homes and regeneration.”
