Double award win!
Skipton based developer Candelisa has won two prestigious building industry awards for its Motor Works mixed-use scheme in Cononley within a week of each other!
Candelisa received the regional award for ‘best high volume new housing development of the year’ in the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) People and Places Awards, qualifying for the national finals in January and ‘best large development of the year’ at the Yorkshire Residential Property Awards.
The LABC awards recognise the best in quality, standards, technical innovations and sustainable designs at a local level. They also take into account the working relationship between the developer, contractors and local authority building control.
The Yorkshire Residential Property Awards were organised by Variety Yorkshire, the Children’s Charity which makes a tangible and positive impact on the lives of children and young people, and raised £126,500 on the night.
The Motor Works is the conversion of a traditional Yorkshire mill building on a six-acre brownfield site which provides 51 elegant apartments and 52 individually designed new homes. There is also over 15,000 ft2 of commercial space to bring employment opportunities to the area
Guy Taylor, Candelisa’s Managing Director, said: “We are absolutely delighted to win these two highly coveted industry awards which endorse our position as an innovative and responsible developer. The in house design of the mill retained the historic core of the building, including the iconic chimney, and we ensured the new luxury annex was sympathetic to its historical context, all with energy efficiency at its heart.
“We worked closely with all stakeholders, including Historic England, throughout the process to ensure the completed scheme complemented this prime rural location while providing much needed quality housing.”
Candelisa is currently working on new residential projects in Embsay and Haworth they will also be developing the Anley Crag Business Park in Settle shortly.
