Packington wins Most Innovative Regeneration Scheme

Packington wins Most Innovative Regeneration Scheme

Once again, the accolades keep rolling in! On Wednesday 8th February 2017 the Housing Innovation Awards 2017 were held at the Connaught Rooms in London, and calfordseaden is delighted to announce that Packington, Phase 4 won the ‘Most Innovative Regeneration Scheme’ award.

Packington is a major inner city six phase regeneration scheme delivering exemplar affordable and for sale housing. The scheme replaces 540 existing affordable homes and provides an additional 300 apartments for private sale, together with the landscaped squares, canal side park, workshops, commercial units, an energy centre and community facilities. Void upgrade works were also undertaken to facilitate decanting.

We have been an integral part of the client’s team from the outset, facilitating the Architect selection process, playing a key role in preparing the bid to Islington Council and the residents to develop stock transfer proposals. Following selection we assisted in developing the stock transfer offer document and the consultation around the transfer ballot which led to an overwhelming vote of support in autumn 2006. We were also part of the team that developed the requirements for and set up the Joint Vehicle structure between the Contractor and Client that has been used to take the development forward.

Packington’s other impressive award wins:

  • ‘Most Innovative Affordable Housing Scheme’: Housing Innovation Awards 2013
  • Highly Commended: Housebuilder Awards 2012
  • Best Regeneration Project: London Evening Standard Best New Homes Awards 2012
  • Best Development Gold Award: What House? Awards 2012
  • Development of the Year: Daily Telegraph British Homes Awards 2011
