New housing at Nansledan shortlisted for RIBA regional award

June 8, 2020

We are delighted that Phase 1 of the new housing development at Nansledan near Newquay has been shortlisted for the South West RIBA Regional Awards 2020.

These 130 homes, some affordable, are the first phase of a 218ha extension to Newquay which will evolve into a 4,000-home community with its own high street, school, public spaces and facilities. It draws on the local vernacular to capture the spirit of Newquay’s urban fabric – supported by the Newquay Pattern Book and a building code shaped by public consultation. In the interests of sustainability, identity and assisting the regional economy, local resources and materials have been preferred: granite for kerb stones, cobbles, lintels and steps, and boundary walls sourced from De Lank Quarry on Bodmin Moor. Sustainable materials used include  blocks made from recycled aggregate or China Clay waste and the reuse of construction waste.

Message from the RIBA 30th Sept 2020: Due to Covid-19 all RIBA Awards judging visits have been postponed this year, all shortlisted projects will automatically be included in the 2021 RIBA Awards shortlist.
