West Grove Wins!
West Grove North, Elephant Park has been awarded the much coveted 2020 Housing Project of the Year, at the British Construction Industry Awards.
The awards, which have been running for 33 years, featured a panel of over 80 judges assessing finalists on 5 key criteria. Each of the many entries were evaluated on the outcome and impact they have made on the environment and the local community, including the quality and satisfaction levels of customers. Other notable winning criteria included the carbon impact the development has made, of which Elephant Park can boast of operating in net-zero carbon; collaborative working and ‘Getting it Right’, which embraces working with the local stakeholders to design healthy and safe neighbourhoods.
The judges had nothing but praise for the development:
“In what was a challenging brief, this winning project was superbly executed and with the community at its heart.”
“The juxtaposition of scales and densities here creates a fine series of buildings and spaces between; all in a landmark setting.”
“Ultimately, West Grove North stood out, by pushing the boundaries with its digital warehouse and by utilising the lessons learnt, which will impact future development.”
Out of the 3 shortlisted finalists, Lendlease got it right on the night, and West Grove North of Elephant Park was proudly crowned the winner.
