Success for innovative Norfolk project

It was a very successful night at the Westminster Park Plaza for all those connected with the Carrowbreck Meadow project in Hellesdon, Norwich. It was here that the project was awarded the title of Best High Volume New Housing Development at the Grand Final of the 2017 LABC Building Excellence Awards. A panel of experts judged a list of the highest quality projects to reward the best in technical innovation, sustainability and design.

Carrowbreck has been designed and delivered by certified Passivhaus architects at Hamson Barron Smith (HBS) for Broadland Growth Ltd (BGL). It has been described as a contemporary rendition of a typical ‘Norfolk style’ – defined by a number of references to the historic barn vernacular incorporating white render, black stained timber cladding, and either slate or plain red roof tiles.
