Awarded winner of the ‘Best Social or Affordable Housing Development’ at the Local Area Building Control North and East Yorkshire Building Excellence Awards 2015. It subsequently went on to be a Finalist in the Grand Finals Awards ‘Best Inclusive Building’ category.
Extra Care sheltered housing gives the opportunity for people to live independently, whilst being able to ‘age in place’. The extra care sheltered housing scheme comprises 40 two-bedroom apartments with added care and communal facilities.
Designed for people who have care and support needs, the sheltered housing includes associated communal facilities and infrastructure. The scheme adopted the design standards highlighted in “Lifetime Homes, Lifetime Neighbourhoods: a national strategy for housing in an ageing society” and the ten design principles set out in the “Housing our Ageing Population: Panel for Innovation” (HAPPI) Report 2009.
