Award-winning Woodhead

Edwinstowe-based Woodhead Construction won the residential category at the RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) East Midlands awards.

Woodhead Living, which manages residential new-build programmes, claimed the award for its Rethinking Housing Delivery project for new homes in Harworth, in partnership with Bassetlaw District Council and A1 Housing. The awards celebrate inspirational initiatives across the built environment.

The award-winning project will see Woodhead Living deliver 71 new homes to Bassetlaw over a three year programme, in the first major social housing project in the district for 35 years.

New homes will replace the non-traditional airey houses — a pre-fabricated house built in the 1950/60s.

The award was given to Woodhead for phase one of the project, which comprised demolition to allow access to the former playing field and the construction of initially 19, rising to 25, new homes.

Derek McGrath, customer engagement director at Woodhead, said: “This is our first RICS award and is a testament to the strong collaboration our Woodhead Living team has developed with A1 Housing and Bassetlaw District Council.

“This project is not just about delivering highly energy-efficient homes, it’s also about having a positive impact on the lives of the local community through enhanced training and employment opportunities.”
