St. Nicholas Church shortlisted for the Constructing Excellence in London & South East 2016 Awards

St. Nicholas Church shortlisted for the Constructing Excellence in London & South East 2016 Awards

We are delighted to announce that the St Nicholas Church site in Perivale has been shortlisted for the Constructing Excellence in London & South East Awards 2016 within the Innovation category.

calfordseaden was appointed to provide Architect, Landscape Architect, Planning Consultant and Sustainability Advisor on the scheme that involved Redevelopment on the site of a significant church building, to create a smaller place of worship and 18 new homes for shared ownership and affordable rent.

The innovative design for the site was developed with the active involvement of ASRA, the church, the diocese and its advisors, the community and the planners. The break though moment came when calfordseaden suggested the site was becoming congested and could be transformed if we could relocate the required flats to above the otherwise single storey church. Even though this ran contrary to every natural instinct of the church and diocese they were enthusiastic about the scheme which opened up the site and unlocked progress on a project that had been in a state of hiatus for 15 years.
