Two national awards for one project

A ground breaking development in Bristol scoops two national awards by Inside Housing, the leading weekly magazine for housing professionals.

The recently completed housing scheme for the Community Self Build Association and Knightstone Housing Association has been voted 2013 Development of the Year, Small Scheme Award Winner, and in Top 50 Best Housing Schemes in the UK completed during 2013.

The first train and build scheme of its kind to accommodate homeless ex-service personnel, the project not only provided much-needed affordable housing but also gave ten ex-service personnel the opportunity to learn new skills and gain qualifications. The brownfield site was formerly used as a car wash and vehicle storage compound. The redevelopment removed an unplanned and undesirable activity from a largely residential community.
