Derwent Living has been awarded the LABC Warranty Social Housing Development of the Year Award for its Wood Street scheme at Church Gresley on the outskirts of Swadlincote in South Derbyshire.
We worked in partnership with Goodwin Building Contractors and architects Urban Designs Limited to build the scheme of two and three bedroom houses. The 15 properties include 12 for social rent and three for shared ownership. The scheme was built using a mix of private finance and social housing grant from the Homes and Communities Agency.
The scheme was developed in collaboration with South Derbyshire District Council because of the ongoing shortfall of affordable housing in the area where there is a growing population and demand for family accommodation.
LABC Warranty’s Awards for Excellence have been designed to recognise and reward the hard work of registered developers, builders and site managers, who stand out from the crowd in delivering high quality construction and design. The recognition associated by winning an LABC Warranty Award for Excellence positions developers and house builders at the forefront of building excellence.
