Brent Social Housing project nominated for three Partnerships Awards

16 April 2012

The Brent Social Housing PFI project has been nominated for three Partnerships Awards.  Bouygues UK’s entry into the Best Designed Project category has resulted in Ada Lewis House and Octave House being shortlisted; Brent Social Housing and Care PFI Contracts Team is up for the Best Local Government Project Team and Brent Council Social Housing PFI has been shortlisted for Best Accommodation Project.

The Brent Housing PFI project is creating 384 affordable homes – including 20 residential care units – across the borough over the next two years, helping the council address the shortage of suitable housing for homeless families, reduce reliance on bed and breakfast accommodation and modernise residential care services for people with learning difficulties. There are 13 sites within the scheme, which comprise a broad range of properties from five and six bedroom town houses to flats of all sizes to suit individuals and local families of different sizes.  All comply with eco homes level three or four which underlines Bouygues UK and Brent Council’s commitment to sustainability.

The Partnerships Awards have been running for 14 years and have evolved over that time to reflect the PPP markets.  For the first time, this year sees all the categories opened to international projects and players now that the PPP world is very much a global one. 

The Partnerships Awards dinner will take place on Thursday 31 May at The London Hilton on Park Lane.
