Kingsway & Lacey Street
Magestic match for larch cladding
Denovo Design provided Halton Housing Trust with architectural services for a fully HCA compliant affordable housing scheme for a vacant brown-field site, a former car park, on Lacey Street in Widnes Town Centre. The overall scheme included 12 terraced houses and an additional 3 houses in a separate infill site nearby at Kingsway.
The challenge was to make the homes as sustainable as possible, with an array of environmental specifications, whilst also working within increasingly tight budgets. Denovo say, “Mild steel rainwater goods were specified because they need no maintenance, are more durable, much stronger in resisting snow loading than plastic, have the lowest carbon footprint and are 100% recyclable.”
Best Affordable Homes
Lindab supplied Rainline steel rainwater system in a plain galvanized finish for the project. The dwellings achieved Code for Sustainable Homes, Level 3 and ‘Lifetime Homes’ standards in addition, the project was recognised as Best Affordable Home at the Your Move Property Awards.
