2016 Build It Awards - Best Collective or Group Self Build Project
'The winning scheme was lauded by the judges for several reasons, but in particular they were impressed that these affordable self-build homes were realised through a combination of sweat equity and shared ownership, giving first-time buyers a foot on the housing ladder, as well as creating an overwhelming level of community and neighbourly spirit.'
The Kingsley Road project was Highly Commended in the category of Housing Project of the Year, narrowly missing out on first place to a larger development in London.
After being named one of the Top 60 developments in the UK during the year, our Kingsley Road project was a finalist for Affordable Housing Development of the Year, a category eventually won by a £1bn new town in Devon.
John Hocking, executive director, Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust, and one of the award judges said:
"The Liverpool project demonstrates direct involvement and provides clear returns to the community; an essential ingredient of successful regeneration."
