We are delighted to announce some double award success for St. Cuthbert’s and our partners Karbon Homes.
The scheme was announced as the winner of the prestigious Northern Housing Awards Supported / Sheltered Housing Scheme of the Year 2021. St Cuthbert's is a £6.7m development of 38 supported flats for older residents located in a Conservation Area at the heart of the historic market town of Hexham. The building was built on a challenging site, long, narrow and sloping, enclosed on 3 sides by existing housing.
The sponsor of the award, Karen Owens, from Procare, said: "We have had so much positive feedback from the judges about this category, and in particular, this St Cuthbert's scheme demonstrates how difficult sites can be to transform and how flexible design supports independent living going forward."
We would like to extend our thanks to Karbon Homes as well as our development colleagues at Tolent Construction, 3e Consulting Engineers and project managers Hall & Partners, as well as all those involved in the project which have made it a success.
In addition, we are also delighted to announce that the St Cuthbert's scheme has been shortlisted for the Inside Housing Development Awards 2021!
Our partners at Karbon Homes entered the scheme for the Best Older People's Housing Development (Rural and Suburban) category. This year’s awards have seen a record number of entries, with the scheme shortlisted from 300 entrants. The winner will be announced at the awards ceremony on Thursday 4 November 2021.
Again, well done to all those involved with the scheme.
