Working with our clients and collaborators is always a rewarding part of what we do.  It’s also a huge recognition for us when we are involved in award winning projects.

Two of our recent projects are in the reckoning for prestigious industry awards, Redhill Barn and Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, that are part of our residential and commercial portfolio respectively.

Redhill was a roofless, ruined Devon barn not far from our Devon Yard.  An innovative gable-to-gable Douglas fir truss was designed, made and raised by our team, as well as the floor structure.  With clever use of wood throughout the build, it showcases UK grown timber and creates a truly unique roof space.

The project, designed by Type Studio has been shortlisted for the RIBA South West awards and has been entered into the Wood Awards.

Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice has been entered into the Wood Awards and Structural Timber Awards.

The 2200m2 building features an oak framed atrium that four wings branch off from – intended to mimic a butterfly’s wingspan.  Designed by Squire & Partners, the hospice provides support for children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families.  We have collaborated with the London firm on several other projects, including Brixton Department Store and St James School – both award winning projects.

The Ark has been entered into the Structural Timber Awards, Wood Awards and has been shortlisted for the Architects’ Journal Community Impact Award.

We will update this story when we find out who the winners are – keep your fingers crossed for us and watch this space!
