Salford housing scheme, Timekeepers Square, has been recognised with yet another industry award, this time with a nomination at the Housing Design Awards 2018.
The development of townhouses off Salford's Chapel Street, which is currently undergoing significant regeneration, was named one of 32 completed projects to be shortlisted from across the UK. The nominations were announced yesterday (25th April) by Housing Minister, Dominic Rabb, during the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government's first housing design conference.
The news follows a string of awards success for the residential scheme which last month won a Civic Trust Award from a shortlist of 60 international finalists, and was also named a shortlisted project at the RIBA North West Awards.
The Housing Design Awards were launched in 1948 to reward better post-war rebuilding. It is the only industry awards promoted by all five major institutions - RICS, RIBA, RPTI, Landscape Institute and Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists.
The winning schemes will be announced during a presentation ceremony on 2nd July at the IET on Savoy Place.
