As part of an identified shortage of Extra Care housing in Haringey, the Trees scheme was seen as an important part of the Borough’s strategic delivery of housing for older people. The scheme provides 40 apartments for older people with a range of communal and support facilities.
Artelia provided cost planning and EA duties, co-ordinating the client brief, including input from the Local Authority’s Housing and Adult Social Care teams and grant funding from the HCA. During the construction stage we administered the D&B contract in relation to time, payments, notification and practical completion procedures, ensuring the handover of a high quality scheme that the client is delighted with.
The project was awarded the Housing Design Award for best completed HAPPI scheme (Housing our Ageing Population Panel for Innovation) and Best Lifetime Home award at the British Homes Awards.
