Published on 5 October 2023

LoCaL Homes, Longhurst Group and Burmor Construction’s California Road development was recognised at the Structural Timber Frame Awards 2023 coming away with the top prize in the ‘Social Housing Project of the Year’ and the ‘Timber Frame Project of the Year’ category.

The homes at California Road in Huntington, Cambridgeshire were built using the LoCaL Homes Eco-200 panelised timber frame system, factory fitted with a cement board cladding and feature brickwork panels.

The development meets a variety of local housing need in Huntington as it comprises a combination of 36 affordable rent, 10 shared ownership, and 10 rent to buy homes: a split of 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom flats and houses.

Chris Hagan, Director of LoCaL Homes said: “We are delighted to have been recognised twice at a UK-wide construction awards. Its clear that LoCaL Homes are a supplier of choice for developers using modern methods of construction.

“We’re really proud to have worked with Burmor Construction to deliver 56 new affordable homes, transforming the site of a former car park, office, and nursery for Longhurst Group. The icing on the cake is definitely winning both the Social Housing Project of the Year and the Timber Frame Project of the Year award at the Structural Timber Frame Awards. Thank you to everyone involved and well done!”

This years’ Structural Timber Frame Awards took place at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham on Wednesday 4 October where LoCaL Homes and their partners on the California Road scheme faced stiff competition from across the UK in their award category.
