Four Barnsley schemes shortlisted in LABC Awards

Four NPS schemes, designed by our Barnsley office, have been shortlisted in the LABC South Yorkshire and Humber Building Excellence Awards 2017.  


These awards are the largest business to business awards in the building control sector and recognise quality in all types of building projects.  


Thurlstone Primary School is shortlisted in the Community Project category. Designed by NPS, this project has almost doubled the footprint of the existing school.  The extension has provided three new classrooms, a library, offices, staff room, reception and associated welfare facilities including external landscaping and formal car parking provision.  


Churchfield Primary is also in the running for the Community Project Award. The scheme involved the provision of two additional classrooms and associated internal and external learning environments, including a sheltered sports pitch to improve field based P.E classes and afterschool activities.  


Roy Kilner Road is a finalist in the Large Housing Development (11+ units) category. Our Barnsley office designed 37 modern new build dwellings including a DDA bungalow and apartments on behalf of Berneslai Homes, which were constructed to Lifetime Homes and Code 3 CSH standards. The development has addressed and improved the social housing stock in Wombwell.  


Green Street is in the running for the Social and Affordable Housing Project award. The development provides six 2-bedroom, semi-detached dwellings for the social rented sector. The scheme has delivered much needed affordable housing, and improved the look of the surrounding area by developing poor quality amenity space.  


NPS Architect Gemma Hinchliffe said: “We are delighted that four of our projects have been shortlisted for these awards. 


"We take immense pride in our work within the South Yorkshire by providing informed architectural responses to each and every project. I believe our technical creativity and innovation has provided a positive contribution to the architecture within our region.”


Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in Brigg on 11 May 2017.
