Challender Court Wins Two RIBA Awards

We are delighted that our Challender Court Project received two awards at the RIBA South West Awards 2018 including the Sustainability Award and an RIBA South West Award. The following is from the judges citation “Challender Court demonstrates a creative response to the UK’s housing crisis, making excellent use of a constrained, brownfield Bristol City Council site to provide eight one bed apartments which respond to a brief to be robust, low maintenance and low energy.

Challender Court provides an excellent reference for the sensitive redevelopment of brownfield sites; whilst so much of the industry effort is focussed on large scale development, this scheme demonstrates that an intelligent ‘boutique‘ approach has the potential to unlock even the most unpromising sites, to provide attractive, robust and sustainable homes.”
