We are absolutely thrilled that Hazelhurst Court has won the Selwyn Goldsmith Award for Universal Design in the 2020 Civic Trust Awards. This award commends spaces that allow all to use with dignity and equality; and are responsive, flexible, welcoming and easy to use and occupy. The scheme has also been Highly Commended at the national level for making positive contributions to the local community through its sustainability, inclusiveness and accessibility. You can find the full list of winners here.
A contingent of 20 of us – including residents living in the scheme, the building manager, resident board members of Phoenix Community Housing, as well as myself, Lotta and Tom – travelled up to Salford to attend the ceremony. And we all went up to collect the prize, too! A huge thank you to our fantastic client, Phoenix Community Housing, as well as the rest of the project team.
