Development of 14 Houses on the Former St Catherine's Church Hall Site

A Development of 14 Dwellings on the site of a former Church Hall in Ashby, Scunthorpe

Project: 14 Houses on Former St Catherine's Church Hall Site, Ancholme Road, Scunthorpe

Client: The Longhurst Group

Site Manager: Chris Sowerby

Completion: October 2010

The development was built on the site of the demolished 'St Catherine's' Church Hall. The previous use of the site was evoked in the name of the development, 'St Catherine's Mews.

The Dwellings were the first in Scunthorpe to be built to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4, greatly surpassing the minimum Level 3 requirements.

The Dwellings were timber framed with brick skins, rather than a traditional brick and block build. This reduced the build time, as the timber frame was pre-manufactured and then subsequently assembled on-site.

The dwellings also featured sustainable features such as a rainwater harvesting tanks which feed the wcs and washing machines on the development, solar panels for hot water heating and high efficient NIBE electric boilers which are designed to reduced energy costs.

The development itself received high praise and was recognised at the Yorkshire and Humber 2011 LABC Awards where it won Best Social or Affordable Housing Development. It was also winner of winners on the night and was subsequently a finalist at the National LABC Award Ceremony in London.
