A new Grimsby apartment block has been shortlisted for second national award
Cordage View, situated on the corner of Eleanor Street and Convamore Road in Grimsby, was opened in February for adult social care independent living opportunities.
The site was shortlisted earlier this year for an Inside Housing Development Award, and has now been shortlisted for the Chartered Institute of Housing Awards Working in Partnership Award.
The nomination commended the project for it’s innovative thinking, ability to overcome significant challenges, and incredible partnership working by multiple organisations.
A £650,000 Department of Health grant enabled installation of technology to support independent living, providing a system that can be added to in order to meet additional needs of the individual tenants.
Local construction firm J C Pomfret Construction Ltd. were responsible for the build and used local labour to complete the project. The firm also worked with a national recruitment agency to provide apprenticeship opportunities to local youngsters.
The Council’s regeneration partner ENGIE helped to oversee the project, offering technical advice throughout.
Golden Lane Housing are the registered provider for the site and Living Ambitions have been appointed as the care provider.
Councillor Callum Procter, portfolio holder for economic growth, housing and tourism at North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “I’m thrilled that this project has been shortlisted. Cordage View overcame some significant challenges thrown up by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Building material shortages and COVID restrictions meant that those involved had to adapt and pull together to complete the project.
“The finished building is the result of some incredible work. Throughout the project, all of the organisations involved worked really well together, and with the needs of the residents in mind.”
The award winners will be announced in November.
